CLB: I agree. It is also important to create lifestyle environments near transit that are so highly attractive as communities, that people will want to move to them. When you place well-designed housing above lifestyle supporting retail uses, add fountains, parks, amenities and attractive landscaping, you have created a “place.” That place can be fun, attractive and can offer such an easy walkable lifestyle, that it actually pulls in space users. These users choose to live in these types of places and they seriously consider using the transit right out their front door. Especially when the time to drive vs. the time to ride move closer to being equal.
