The reason why transit ridership declines?

We build vanity projects that don't get riders to their destination and then cut bus service that does. We have to save money to fund these vanity projects and truly viable transit suffers.

We also allow big corporations to build major job centres in the middle of nowhere because the cost of land is cheap. We need to start to rationalize where jobs may be located so that transit service is viable.

Transit planning and investment has to change so that it actually delivers better service and goes where people want to go. Often making bus service frequent will give the best bang for the buck. We also are afraid to put roads on a diet so that bus lanes can be inserted.
