Bus Rapid Transit without buses
Buses are big, ugly, and dangerous. BRTs make big, ugly, and dangerous buses move faster. As a cyclist, that fact is not comforting. I might be more than a little bit interested in seeing what we can do to get rid of buses altogether. They’re part of the transportation mix right now, and we’ll probably have to live with them for at least a little while longer, but we should do everything we can to make them less dangerous to pedestrians and cyclists---whether they are part of a BRT system or not.
The bike people want to radically reduce the use of automobiles in the city, and now they want to eliminate the "transit" in Bus Rapid Transit in a "transit first" city?
