Commonsense, It's not about the roads that the buses use - it's about the roads that are built for people to access the far-flung housing developments via car. Roads that the entire city pays for, but nobody who lives downtown needs to use.

I'm not saying that those roads should not exist - but if we all pay equally for roads that only some people use, why can't we all pay equally for a transit system that only some of us use?

Public transit, like roads (and schools etc) are financed through taxes because they collectively benefit all of us, whether we are direct users or not.
