Re: Pedestrians aren't the only ones who matter.

I can't get to any report with hundreds of pages, so I can't see that.
But one set of numbers immediately jumps out at me: $40.2 million minus $28.3 million (grant from the Feds) equals about $12 million. Add a little for scope creep and you can easily get $15 million.
Perhaps when they say that the cost is $15 million, they mean that the cost to New York City taxpayers is $15 million, with the rest paid for by all residents of the country?
And when MTA mentions the costs, maybe they're talking about their costs to run the B44? (which is paid for by the state)
So maybe the reasons the costs don't match up is that it depends who (DOT vs MTA) is stating a cost to whom (City Council vs MTA Board) and which pots of money the funds are coming from (city, state, federal), and what is being paid for (street markings vs fare machines vs additional buses vs bus driver salaries)?
