Neil: An "express busway" does not have to be smelly and loud. New hybrid buses are quiet and "green" to operate---no smells. No brownie for that point! As for the downtown shopping, who has money to spend? Unemployment is high in the District. Coming to the store is not actual buying! Also, unless we get our act together, who will shop or ride surface transit in high crime areas anyway???? People in the city have a right to live there without fear of riding a bus, or walking to a store. Why not put LRV project money to MUCH better use by really helping the residents, "creating jobs," training programs, educational grants, and helping the homeless-----not on an expensive experiment in transit???? Many fancy revitalization projects, like the LRV, can often be for public relations----a mere attempt to create a pretty facade or sweep real issues under the rug away from public view. As for heavy rail, tell it to Chicago and NYC, which both have successful heavy commuter rail. It already DOES EASE TRAFFIC and commutes there, ....and "goes where needed!"
