I LOVE HYBRIDS. They are simply the ultimate in eco-friendly transportation and everyone who owns one is doing his or her part to make the world a better place.

I do all the time. I have a much more informed opinion of bus riders than you do, since I am one myself, and literally rub elbows with them all the time.

You know NOTHING about the bus system here. Your opinion, as usual, is worthless.

On days like today, when so much worse is going on in the world, your self-centeredness, your arrogance, your elitism, your ignorance, your goading and me-firstism, your selfishness and hypocrisy, are extremely irritating. No one understands why you are on this board. Go away.



Valid point. This board is for sluggers. Why is NoSUV here. It's like a die hard Windows user on a Macintosh discussion board. Why?

Still waiting for NoSUV to put up or shut up.

I don't see how that would lower the number of SOVs.

If population is the problem, then eliminate SOV for hybrids dimbulb. Voila, more people in less cars. It's not like there aren't well over 10K SOV hybrids in HOV.

Hey stupid, slugs contribute to the environment by getting cars of the road. Unfortunatley, those of us who bus/slug from down south (234) have had our commute times increased substantially by self serving hybrid owners who drive right by lines of people waiting in commuter lots for buses or slug rides, choosing to clog the HOV lanes. I've actually started counting hybrids that pass the bus in the morning. One day last week, 8 out of 10 vehicles that sped past the bus were hybrids. Not one had a second passenger. I didn't really think about the impact until I got within about a half mile of the pentagon and hit the backup for the exit. HOV's out the whazoo, and you'd be surprised (maybe not) how many of them took the right lane, which is for a right turn, and then turned left. Then they cut in to the correct lane to turn in to the parking areas of the pentagon. Typical self serving hybrid owners.

Wrong, as usual, NoSUV.

The goal is to move the most people in the fewest vehicles. Eliminating carpools would not drive all those people to ride the bus, because they simply won't do it. (Like you, who won't ride the bus.)

So eliminating carpools would only dramatically increase the number of vehicles in the regular lanes.

Sadly, what you are envisioning is exactly what Fluor/Transurban have in mind: they call it BRT for Bus-Rapid-Transit. It is a mega-bus vehicle capable of carrying many more people than one of the traditional highway bombers that Omniride has. A BRT is something more like a short train or a double-semi.

Fluor's plan all along has been to build BRT stations along I95 and push all the carpoolers onto the mega-buses for a ride to the Pentagon, since these creatures can't negotiate the District's streets. Read Fluor's proposal and you'll see.
