Re: What Really Causes Traffic Congestion

Posted by BrooklynBus on Wed Jul 10 10:36:16 2013, in response to Re: What Really Causes Traffic Congestion, posted by Jackson Park B Train on Wed Jul 10 00:53:20 2013.

As I stated, it all comes down to what alternatives someone has. Yes, some commute to Mahattan by car when they shouldn't but others have little choice or don't want to be stuffed into crowded trains. You have no right to force them to do do.

And what makes you do sure that if transit funds start coming in headways will be cut? The MTA proposed a series of new bus routes at 30 minute headways. Then they found $40 million but still did not decrease the headways on the proposed routes to every 20 minutes. Thirty minute headways are a huge deterrent and not a way to build ridership or test demand.
