Fear of a Mass Transit

“The city of Los Angeles is going to add some bike and bus-only lanes to its roads. This will, by necessity, take those lanes away from cars, which might make traffic problems worse, initially. But ideally, over time, it will alleviate congestion because it will encourage people to use forms of transit that do not involve getting into a car and becoming part of the problem, like the subway, a bus, a bicycle or their own two feet.” Source: Transit Terrorism – The Awl
