Well I do not see how the LRT is going to help low income people, considering the fact that those who are the most vulnerable cannot even afford to use public transit. Now, with the fact the bus tickers are no longer being sold, one must pay additional monies for the card, to load money they do not have.

I am not saying that the LRT is a bad thing, it is not a catlyst to help the poor. The poor need more money to survive, social assistance rates are not based on reality. The writer talks about gentrification, yet that means poorer people are pushed out, while more affluent take over the space.
