Guess what? Busses take up less space than cars, and leave more space for pedestrians and bikers. For some reason the pictures below from Livable Places convey that common sense concept better than those words do.
People in those cars
The same people on a bus
The same people walking and biking
Is it just me, or do the people in the last photo look happier than the people in thier cars?
