Taken for a Ride

Taken for a Ride documents the efforts to derail mass transit in America. Using historical footage and investigative research, this film tells how GM and Standard Oil conspired to buy up and destroy streetcar systems across the U.S. GM was convicted of this criminal conspiracy in court and given a token fine. Suburban sprawl, jammed freeways and smog became the norm for every city, so GM could sell more cars. 1 hr.
