The headline still overstates the law: It only bans dedicated bus lanes, not all bus transit.

re: #1 Dark_Falcon

Bus Rapid Transit = dedicated lanes for buses. You can’t have BRT without them.

Anyways this doesn’t surprise me. Republicans hate public transit, especially the kind that allows people to drive less, consume less oil, and allow the poors access to rich people’s neighborhoods. This is just one more bill passed to spite anybody outside the tribe.

Oh - it only bans them in the very places they’d be needed and supported. That’s OK then! Oh and they ban dedicated bus lanes only - because of their concern for passenger safety. Of course! Much safer to ensure any future lanes mix with regular traffic! Aaah, American conservatism. Constantly ensuring transport is at it’s least efficient. Gotta keep the energy industry happy with the highest energy demand per capita than any other country on the planet!
Because Freedom.
And Conservatism.
Freedom for extremely wealthy people to make billions out of communities of the working poor, and conservatism - in a Burkean, we’re still-living-in-the-1800s, kind of way.

No, the headline is not at all overstated. Unless you don’t think it through, maybe.

This is just stupid. Really what is the point of doing this?

Reduces demand for oil in the long term.
