In most cities in the US, even if you don't commute by car you really need a car to live well.
Also, some older urban areas in the states were designed with a central core and commuter trains that went out to compact suburbs that were clustered around rail stations. So, it's not true that this model never existed in the US.
Everywhere that I've lived that had snow did plow the sidewalks.
One thing I'd like to see tried is two-tier bus service. When you buy train or plane tickets, you buy first class or second class tickets. They call them different names (maybe "economy" and "business"), but they amount to the same thing: if you pay more you get a nicer seat and better treatment than you do if you pay less. No one whines about this arrangement. You all climb into the same vehicle and go to the same place, but some people are in first class and some people are in second class. It's a matter of how much money you have to spend on tickets.
