I would guess the answer is no for Tokyo. But even in liberal states with liberal cities transit funding is still weak or poorly spent. I think Atlanta vs GA is probably the best example of a conservative government going against a cities transit needs but then that leaves out places like NYC that need massive upgrades and places like Chicago, both being in liberal states.

Point? Transit is a bipartisan issue. Both suck at it, conservatives just suck more.
