Take a look:

Forbes: Bus Rapid Transit Spurs Development Better Than Light Rail Or Streetcars

Opening money line . . .

"Bus rapid transit, in which buses in dedicated lanes perform like rail lines, can not only spur development, but can do so far more efficiently than light rail and streetcars, according to a study due out later this month from the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy.

“Both BRT and LRT can leverage many times more development investment than they cost. Now we can say that for sure,” according to the institute’s director for the U.S. and Africa, Annie Weinstock, who previewed the findings at a Metropolitan Planning Council Roundtable in Chicago last week."

The trouble is, buses don't put nearly as much money into as many pockets as the trolley did, and will again if given the chance.

I guess expecting folks to get a job and buy a bicycle would make the folks paying for this shit villains?

Bob is right the trolley fill outsiders pockets and the buses won't. Nice thing about a bus is when a route dies you just move the bus to a much needed area. When the trolley dies you're left with a mess to clean up and a bunch of used crap nobody wants.

You can run electric buses on that line and not have to tape up the windows on the train.
