An all-electric, free-floating, equity-minded car-share service like Blue LA would be a great replacement. But we should also focus on improving transit and biking so that people rarely need to drive at all.
Streetsblog writer Courtney Cobbs wants a CDOT chief who will bring about "positive equitable and transformative change" and has a list of concrete suggestions on how to make this happen.
Living in a neighborhood with lots of bus service is of limited use if the buses get stuck in traffic generated by drivers. That's why we need bus-only lanes and other time-saving strategies.
By not having physically protected bike lanes as standard, we will continue to have a two-tiered transportation policy that puts cyclists last and motorists first.
