    re: “Bay Area Transit in Crisis” – it seems to me that a lot more could be done to accommodate bicycles for many of these commuters forced to drive cars instead.

    The ABC7 story’s sample individual is offered the choice of a 12 minute car commute, or an hour by transit. It seems to me that all things being equal, a bicycle could do that in 30-60 minutes…or at least replace connecting buses for more-reliable trains for part of the overall journey.
