John Neary - You said "We don't ask our roads to pay for themselves. We pay for them out of general tax revenues (which is dumb, but it's what we do.) Why hold public transit to a higher standard?"

I guess the answer is that the vast majority of residents in this (and most North American cities) use the automobile as their prime mode of transport. Even in Europe where cities are much more transit friendly they are seeing a rising automobile ownership rate. Transit on the other hand is for a much smaller segment of the population.
