Transit in Trouble - Bay Area Profile

PBS has this video. I don't quite like the focus on subsidy, especially since they don't point out how much all other modes are subsidized as well, but I like that they are shining a light on the issue of operating rather than capital.

Sadly, Operating costs are not politically sexy. If politician only realized the long term benefits to their political careers, if their constituents did not face fare hikes, and service cuts every year.

Our bloated highway spending has to be cut too for that matter.
