  1. “40 additional minutes”.

    You want us to “allow” 40 additional minutes each way to work and back – daily? They sell us on public transportaion, promising the alleviation of congestion, yet I/we get to bear the burden of almost an extra hour and half of our criticle time to do so?

    Public transportation is great, if that is your only means of commuting, however, to sell the idea of going green to people that could very easlily jump in their car – alone – and reach their destination in 20 minutes or less, is where you need to consentrate your selling efforts towards.

    If 40 minutes each way to work and back is what you’re selling prospective commuters, then LA is not buying!
