First, $18 billion is the congestion relief benefit from daily transit operation, not including capital spending. For a true apples-to-apples comparison, the spending on transit is $37 billion (the figure for operating expenses), not $54 billion (the figure for total expenses).

Huh? The $18 billion is an estimate of the total annual congestion relief benefit from transit. The costs of transit include both operating costs and capital costs. Are you seriously under the impression that transit services can operate without transit infrastructure?
