Morning Must-Read: Duncan Black: All Buses Are Good Things

Duncan Black: Eschaton: Buses Are Good Things:

I do think the "tech buses" in San Francisco should be paying an appropriate impact fee if they're going to be using public bus stops, but the alternative to the buses is, you know, many many more road clogging cars. Basically the Bay Area just needs more housing, especially where there are decent transportation options.... I don't worry about poor people being driven out of the city [of Philadelphia] anytime soon, but I do worry that the neighborhoods with better public transit (high frequency bus routes, trolleys, subway) might, eventually, become unaffordable.
