  1. nice … I always grate when driving on 4th or Broadway (others also hold true, those aways seem worst) that half of the road is almost inevitably stopped waiting for a turning car … suggesting that 2 lanes are entirely sufficient to handle traffic loads (with turn lanes where needed) and 4 is largely superfluous.

  2. Does the city has the intention to take account of this presentation when come the Commercial drive redesign?

    if so great…

    btw, I think the figure are a bit over optimistic for the surface transit throughput
    (at least if we want to keep a decent level of service, and I am not convinced automation of transit will buy anything substantial in term of surface transit capacity…well will see)
