If your desire is to have draconian government policies implemented that will result in a loss of profits for developers or businesses then you are in for a long wait. The more practical tack would be to convince developers and businesses of the business case for providing greater access by bike/foot/bus/(LRT :)). A lot of people do not go to the Meadowlands because they spend an hour just in traffic and there are a lot of places like that. How many more customers could they bring in to the area with a more advanced transportation infrastructure? How much easier would it be to sell new houses and condos if you could advertise 'short walk to school and library', 'bike safely to parks and shopping', 'steps from LRT'. These are pluses that are noticed by young home buyers and they should be exploited by developers.
