public transit doesnt make sense because it is impossible to make it profitable and it has to be heavily subsidized by the government! the private sector is more efficient! *capitalist ride sharing services also turn out to not be profitable and are heavily subsidized by investors* ah, nevertheless,
@dankwraith ty for sharing this

@dankwraith Its true. However, choices in how its managed & laid out, & w/c neighborhoods are connected better, cause
* Transit-induced gentrification
* Spatial mismatch
* Favoritism towards gentrification & colonization
* Exclusion & isolation of communities that could overcome adversity if they were conveniently connected
* Including making it physicly riskier to spend enough time in a different part of town, if busses going back stop at night & all the busses back are taking a highway or s-th & theres actually no footpath.
In Houston, u can see all of this really well if u try & get around to different neighborhoods a lot.
@dankwraith Hold up, dankwraith, are you saying a thing's necessity isn't inherently bound to someone's ability to extract profit from it? Sounds pretty radical to me
@dankwraith make the argument with sewage systems
