Interesting discussion between two of my favorite bloggers about Bus Rapid Transit versus cars in the city of Chicago.

Aaron Renn of the Urbanophile urbanophile.com

and
John Greenfield of Streets Blog Chicago chi.streetsblog.org

"A more serious problem with Renn’s piece is his assertion that the Ashland BRT project would be a case of transit advocates intentionally “degrading the urban environment” for drivers, which would make Chicago a less livable city. The plan calls for converting two of the four travel lanes on Ashland Avenue to dedicated, center-running bus lanes, which would require the elimination of most left turns off of the street."
