  •  Don't demonize buses (8+ / 0-)

    They do the job, and are far more flexible in terms of changing travel/population patterns; it's hard to take out a streetcar line that's unperforming, but a bus can be rerouted easily. The best systems rely on a combination of streetcar/trolley, traditional transit buses, and the smaller "community" type buses. And with many systems now acquiring both hybrid buses and smaller buses that use biodiesel, you can have a system that reduces the reliance on fossil fuels.
