  • RE Brenwood Homeowner on BRT Blame the BUS lane for congestion. It works but at the end of the day it does not solve the problem. The BUS lane is part of the solution not part of the problem.

  • I’m a bit surprised at that U.S. News and World Reports list. Apparently, both Minneapolis and Salt Lake City beat us.

    Although we are above Honolulu. I took both Da Bus and the Waikiki Trolley the last time I was on Oahu, and I thought both were pretty good, so good job Los Angeles.

    Getting past San Francisco (#6 on the list) is going to be a challenge, but I think if we keep building subways and the downtown streetcar, keep working on the TAP card and keep fares reasonable (sorry, bicycling didn’t seem to enter into their calculations), we might be able to do it.
