Two great lines form the ABQ Ride story:
"It is like asking is it the goal of the library system to make money,” he [Rizzieri] said “It is the goal of the police and fire department to make money, you don't provide a transit service with the idea of making money."

And from the comments: "I don't understand why people expect mass transit riders to pay their full cost, but don't expect the same from car drivers. Gas taxes don't even come close to covering the cost of building and maintaining roads, so every time you roll your car out of the driveway you're being subsidized by my income taxes. Maybe we should expect bus riders to pay enough in fares to cover the whole cost of the bus system when we raise gas taxes enough that drivers are paying for the whole cost of their system."

I know better than to read the comments on any of the news sites anymore, even though they're a regular source of some fascinating grammatical inventions and "creative spelling" examples. but the article itself is terribly written and in desperate need of a decent copy editor. sheesh.

Nice quotes indeed from the ABQ Ride story. I always like to ask the Railrunner detractors just when roads started paying for themselves? Usually shuts them right up.

Benny, Gas taxes increase cost on the overall economy. Any truck driver will tell you that. Of course the roads aren't just used for cars any longer, are they? Perhaps a bike tax should come into play also? Sidewalk tax for pedestrians?

Y'know, Granny, that's not a bad idea. Maybe if there are some dedicated revenue streams we'd actually start seeing some improvements for those facilities.

I know. I'm not just ruggedly handsome, I'm also goodlooking.. I'm thinking toll booths on the bike paths.
