Car tabs are regressive, yes, bu in general auto drivers should be contributing more than others for public transit, so this is on the right track. An MVET based on car value would be better, and a fee based on Vehicle Miles Travelled would be even better. Eventually we'll need as ll of the, but for now, tab fees aren't a horrible option.

@ 7 is 100% correct. Upzoning select single-family neighborhoods would create lots more capacity and eventually lots more supply, easing the upward pressure on rents. Problem is, is there a single person at city hall with the balls to make this case?

I love this place too. It makes me feel a bit like I am in the world of HBO's Carnivale. The pews as booths is brilliant.
