From the NY Post:
People living in East New York, who endured grueling commutes that averaged 63.3 minutes in the previous survey, made it door-to-door in 46 minutes this time.
Researchers determined that was because fed-up residents decided to drive to work.
In 2007, 17.5 percent bypassed mass transit and got to work by car. By 2008, the figure had jumped to 26 percent.
Oh boy, you mean all that time and money wasted on bike lanes instead of real transportation actually caused more people to drive?
And we're gonna now spend $16M in tax money for a bike path along the Brooklyn waterfront (which just as in LIC, doesn't go along the water for most of the route)?
Yes, we seem to have our priorities in order.
