Re: toll lanes
The way to fix it is bring the work to the people.
It's almost at the stage where a huge amount of manual and clerical work doesn't need a real office at all or a real factory.
Remote robots and virtual offices are the answer.
Buses certainly are not.
BTW the free for all minicab solution exists for real in Soweto/Johannesburg. The trains are simply too unsafe to ride. Mind yuou, competition between minicab drivers goes as far as shooting the opposition...
