NJB is fantastic. I agree, this divided pretty clearly illustrates the problem, and the backwards thinking that most Americans have towards tackling public transit.
Public transit needs to be more convenient than driving to move it from an option of last resort to the preferred method. It will never be that if we wait for the demand.
The crazy thing is.. there is plenty of room on all our stroads to fit transit if we wanted!
