Bus-Only Lane on All Main Road
Buses would be great if not for the slow personal vehicles on narrow roads. Thus, bus-only lanes make the ultimate sense for public speed.
The hard part about this is roads with just two lanes, & the whole system. I believe that two lane roads wont be important over all, but idve to look at all the roads. Now, for reform of the whole system, you need consistent service, wherein the buses work like a metro--same hours for all & one route per road. Now, what we have is two routes on the same road or more routes & that is unhelpful, &, also, others without weekend service. In other words, the bus system needs to run like a metro system, with complete regularity, as if each road was a railway. Of course, we need better looking, better smelling buses, which we can get thru automatic air fresheners & more long buses like the new hybrids, wherein even more people. In fact, the metro is completely unnecessary. Now, it is true that at first cars may crash with buses, like what we see with the new Brightline trains, & the often deaths, but in the long term, less people will drive, crash, get fat, etc. Buses can be incredibly attractive, but, i repeat, bus-only lanes with a regularized route-per-road system alone achieves that. It is also important to market transit, & it makes me proud that it is already often done by the County, but we can do it more, especially when we have so much on the line, as climate change worsens & speeds. People like you, Ford, should also encourage purchase of light, compact cars, not behemoth metal boxes, great threats to public & pedestrian & biker's safety. Thank you much
