Public Transportation to Reduce Traffic Jam

Traffic jam.
I’m sure that all of us have gotten tired already with this classic problem of our country. How many time in our life have we wasted already only for traffic jam? This may seem trivial, but truly, this has been severe enough to cost us a lot. Not only is that it physically damage us, but also mentally and materially. What can be done over this problem? What actually went wrong?

This kind of requirement has been fulfilled by most of advance countries all over the world, but unfortunately still not yet fulfilled by our country. We all can jealously see how New York has its sub-way train system as a public transportation, Korea for having their MRT, Japan also...
