“Residents are left with no choice but to take the subway to Manhattan and back ... or take the bus, where ridership has continued to decline.”

So, there is an existing alternative that doesn’t involve absolutely fucking up traffic, and...? People aren’t using it.

So, this sounds like bullshit.

I don't think the BQX will fuck up traffic. Most of the streets on the alignment are not particularly busy; all of the through traffic takes the nearly-parallel BQE.

The reality is that if this route is such a good idea, it could be a bus route today. I have never been on a tram like this and thought "wow, we're making really good time along these city streets". It's just an overpriced bus.
