No, they're both transportation, land use, environmental, economic, and social issues. They should be linked. Given that most transportation has to be subsidized, we should be subsidizing modes that are economically, socially, and environmentally beneficial. And we should be discouraging modes that are harmful in those ways. Price signals are key; there was a post on The Infrastructurist or Transport Politic not long ago showing that raising gas prices does more to increase transit ridership than lowering fares. Damaging transportation modes should cost more and subsidize the healthier ones.
