Well, I got here by way of a link on the home page asking the question 'what would make you ride transit?' So, my answer is that it's something that's not going to happen, if it happens at all, for quite some time. Many of the city & residential areas in this county are simply not designed for frequent & affordable public transportation. They're designed for cars (big wide streets & lanes). There is a small effort over the past five or so years to build more "citylike" housing, directly above commercial businesses, but those are very few & far between, let alone affordable. City planning & designing is what makes the difference.
