Most cars sit parked ... i.e. empty for most of the day. That is a better analogy. Think of all the space we allocate in our cities for cars. I recall RTH running a piece showing what happens when surface parking is developed into a more productive use ... considerably higher assessed value and far greater tax contribution to the city. When you consider the full cost of mass automobility and all the hidden subsidies required to make it viable your argument falls apart and mass transit seems more fiscally responsible. But fine continue to cherry pick ... all kinds of things would change if we priced mobility one-to-one based on true cost.
