  1. 1. What mass transit system(s) do you think Remington should build?

    • Subway
    • Elevated Rail
    • Monorail
    • Bus

Welcome to Remington! With a population of just less than 130,000, it is the main city in the region.


This is a pure boomtown; Remington was founded as a small suburb, but its population increased by 125,000 in a span of about 15 years. As you can see, the Highway 25 cuts directly through downtown and has an interchange with the East Tollway right at the city center.

Remington has seen better days. Gridlock is strangling the city, which has no public transportation whatsoever. Buildings are abandoning left and right, and city schools are on an extended strike due to limited funding. The city government has had to resort to massive tax hikes to keep a budget surplus. Two options are being considered

  • Tolling Highways 25 and 397 in the city (in addition to the East Tollway
  • Developing a massive industrial district in the empty southeastern part of the city

Both of these would have major consequences: the first option would cause even more gridlock, considering that these already the most congested highways in the region; and the second option would create large amounts of pollution. But the benefits could be the only thing to keep the city going. What do you think?

Toll Stations and Bus Stations right away. That will help. Subways are the best option, but are expensive. I would go with Bus Stations.

If you want, you can legalize Marijuana and establish a few farms and make, quick money to help you and will calm your citizens.
