You are making no sense at all here. No one said anything about pedestrians and bus riders not mattering.

I asked him a simple yes or no question and his response was that neither of us has proved anything which says absolutely nothing and avoids the question being asked.

I wasn't making any assumptions. I was using numbers that have already been quoted by other sources and proving my case that IT IS JUST IMPOSSIBLE to even hint that the numbers of those in cars and those in buses is anywhere near equal as fdtutf was claiming.

Now you are making an equally outrageous statement that the numbers of autos are inflated because many cars make multiple trips up and down the street while bus riders tend to make only one trip each way.

Where is your proof of that? I forgot, you don't need any proof to make ridiculous statements which you then claim as fact. And what would be your rationale for claiming such anyway, that once you are in a car, it doesn't cost you more to keep driving up and down the street because it is so pleasant, while bus riders have to pay a separate fare each time?

Wrong. Each mile you drive cost you more gas. And weren't you the one who claimed that most bus riders have unlimited passes so double fares are not important? So I can claim that it is more likely that bus riders are more likely to make multiple trips than auto drivers since bus riders are paying a flat rate where as cars are paying extra for each mile driven. So there goes that argument.

Got any other ideas why 50,000 car crossings is not more than 33,000 bus riders? That certainly is relevant data. So don't lie and say I am basing my conclusions on no data.

If you take my conclusions as fact, bus lanes would be an inequitable use of space.

I can just as easily twist what you say if I wanted to. So thanks for proving my case for me that SBS is a poor idea by hurting more than it helps.
