I was under the impression that the 10 was supposed to be a kind of “dry run” for rapid transit. To do that, routes would need to be aligned to feed it, which has not happened yet in many places. It would function better, and riders would be better-served, if that were done. And the city’s case for LRT would be substantially strengthened, I think, if it could just be “dropped in” in place of the 10.

It would be better if the HSR had such a board as Jason suggests. I understand that the local councillors are put in a difficult position, and it would be more efficient and maybe easier on them if they could credibly say that route changes come about after a professional- not political- process that tries to maximize service to all riders. We seem to treat transit service as purely a social service that should be afforded exclusively to those who depend on it most and are most able to make noise to keep it.
