So Much Wasted Space (and money)
How many times have you heard someone say that buses and bike lanes are such wastes of money because they have seen them empty? The bike counter on the Hawthorne Bridge helps dispel some of that notion by making the barely visible, more visible. And, of course, only running buses when they would be full would be like only opening roads for rush hour.
Now that’s an idea! Here are a few shots of downtown streets I took during the week. Wouldn’t it be nice to have wider sidewalks, say, with room for seating around the food carts, and maybe even some cycle tracks. Looks like there’s enough room to me!
