    It’d be nice if the city could open up the low bridge during rush hour so people don’t lose their minds. Road rage is real, and with everything else going on, we really don’t need this. Shame that the city has allowed it’s largest neighborhood to be so cut-off like this.

      If you open up the low bridge to cars in the rush hour, the buses will get stranded in the resultant traffic.

    It should be noted that the air quality has reached ‘poor’ levels.  This is directly related to auto emissions.  I still can’t get used to the idea that in 2021, air pollution due to cars is worse than ever.  This has at least four causes: poor engine design, lax emission standards, too many vehicles on the road, and poor human judgment.  This species is toast.  Literally.

      What are you talking about? Motor vehicles today run cleaner and more efficient than they ever have. It has only gotten better since the introduction of hybrids and electrics and, not to mention, the invention of the catalytic converter. There are more options for getting around town as well with ride-sharing, bike share, and scooters. Heck, even a gas powered moped at 150cc will get you 120 mpg’s. Vehicle pollution, to the contrary of your comment, is at an all-time low. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
