But it could still lead to a decent increase in transit use (especially if new housing + employment is built near transit).
I think that it depends on the goal.

If the goal is to generate as much transit ridership as possible, then the solution is probably to invest in commuter services to downtown, and build a subway system in Central LA.

If the goal is to serve as many people as possible, but not necessarily generate the most rides, then the solution is to build a county-wide light rail system, as they are doing.
I'm no longer allowed to post about Chicago or microstudios.
