There is no binary division between people who drive and people who use other modes: like most people advocating for more complete streets, I walk, I cycle, I take transit, and I drive, depending on where I'm going and under what circumstances.

Amen, Brother Ryan. I bike; I drive; I walk; I take the odd bus. Us vs. them is a false dichotomy.

And here's a funny thing: the easier it gets to bike downtown, the more I bike downtown; the more I bike downtown, the more I wander around downtown; and the more I wander downtown, the more I drive downtown, too. Because this downtown in which I wander and bike is a better downtown. So I just come here more often, be it a 45 minute walk, a fifteen minute ride or a ten minute drive-and-park-and-walk.

A downtown which is good for people on foot and on bike is a more likely to be a downtown worth driving to. Not through - to.
