The subsidies don't bother me, in fact I think we should pay more to bring the price down further. People tend not to use the system due to infrequent buses and lousy coverage.

What my taxes go towards for HSR subsidies is the ability for people to get to and from work more easily, to use transit instead of personal vehicles and reduce pollution overall because of it.

Overall it's money well spent.

A toll road situation would require a huge investment from the city (or do you think that it would be donated?) that would likely cost far more than the HSR subsidy and I fail to see how it would generate any new investments, which LRT would. What do you have against encouraging private investment?
