Very insightful analysis, Ryan, that points out how something just has to be done after seventeen years. Since the four-year phase-out was used previously for other city services that approach might minimize the political fallout.

One thing that would concern me though is that equalizing the transit levy for all built-up areas could lead to unreasonable expectations. Unfortunately, you need density for the economical operation of transit and this is not something that you generally find in the suburbs. Even with your proposed funding increase, the HSR would not be able to offer the same quality of service to outlying areas that it currently operates on some of its busier corridors. Suburban residents might not be happy with hourly service that does not operate in the evening or on weekends.
