Reduce traffic jams in U.S. urban centers

In the U.S., the population grew 20% from 1982 to 2001. In that same time span, traffic in urban centers increased by 236%. Since the amount of cars on the road is expected to double by 2020, real solutions need to be identified that will help reduce traffic in urban centers.
