Everything was going so well my friend. Then you suggest I've never ridden the bus? Come on. Also, if you're trying to argue against the LRT by invoking how noisy, uncomfortable and dirty buses are, then I'm afraid we aren't going to get very far into this discussion legitimately. Surely if buses are so horrible, then we should be looking into alternatives!

Lets discuss potential trips of passengers. Currently the only way to get to the other side of the Red Hill from a neighbourhood between the Delta and the Circle is by making your way to Main, King or Barton. This situation will not change with the adoption of LRT. The only change will be a slightly longer walk to an LRT station instead of a closer local stop. And this assumes that there will be no changes whatsoever to existing HSR routes. What about increased feeder routes, that run loops through local streets and take passengers to an LRT station?

There are plenty of possibilities if we expand our perspective beyond the boundaries of what exists now. There are also plenty of examples where traffic is not snarled beyond repair when higher order transit is instituted well.
