Much depends on how LRT is implemented.

One scenario described would see 18 buses removed from service, not reassigned to duty elsewhere in the city.

IMHO, the B-Line routes' service frequency surely improves their ability to encourage use, and the system would arguably benefit from the reallocation of those buses to mountain and suburban service (where routes typically run on a 20-minute headway Monday to Saturday, 30-minute headway on Sundays if at all).

Between 2006 and 2011, the HSR's per-capita transit usage was essentially flatlined at 42. It's hard not to think that this was influenced by the fact that the city's population growth was, on the whole, taking place in mountain and suburban wards, where service is wanting.
