    NOTE: alison's idea "parking for transit riders" has been merged with this one.

    How about a little compromise? Parking around transit stations might encourage people to lessen their travel footprint - a good start.

    this is a great and SIMPLE idea. I completely 100% agree. Simple addition of large parking structures that only require you to buy a transit pass nearby sky train stations would increase ridership. Additionally, people who might otherwise drive to work might start taking public transit just because parking is so cheap at the station and so hard to come by downtown.

    I agree! People from suburbs with poor bus service will be more likely to switch to buses in the city. It often doesn't make sense to pay for parking and bus fare, you might as well drive. We need to reduce road congestion in the city centre and get as many people as possible on public transport.
