Director of Transportation and Land Use, Eric Goldwyn, was interviewed by Matthew Yglesias on The Weeds’ episode, “Why Transit Projects Fail.” During a discussion on streetcars and ridership, Goldwyn said:
That’s the name of the game with transportation. If something is reliable, people use it. If it’s not reliable, people probably won’t use it. And, I think that’s where you want to focus your money. If you can pay to run a subway every five minutes rather than every ten minutes, that’s worthwhile. And the same goes with the bus.
