Not sure how trackless would be better, but your point is valid. Sprawl isn't well served by any type of mass transit. Development needs to change. There needs to be dense infill along commercial corridors. Transit is just one piece of the puzzle. This problem needs to be looked at holistically.

Just seems like it would be easier, cheaper, and more versatile.

HOV lane but no rail. That's a car-centric mindset planning mistake.



"The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is giving residents a sneak peek at its plan to expand Interstate 35 from Northeast San Antonio through the growing towns of Selma and Schertz.

Those plans, simply put, call for turning much of that portion of I-35 into a double-decker freeway – with no tolls."

Bus Replacements Planned Using Initial VW Funds Don’t Ditch Fossil Fuels

"The grant funding could be used to replace the buses with zero-emission electric models, some of which VIA already has in service. However, VIA chose instead to use the funding to continue its transition from diesel to compressed natural gas, or CNG, and East Central ISD plans to replace its diesel buses with newer diesel models."
