People are afraid to take the bus because of threatening car traffic at bus stops

Longview News-Journal: "Then there's the fact these journeys take more planning, more time and, sometimes, more reliance on the human kindness of our neighbors. Consider having to wait an hour to be able to start — or continue — your journey because that is when the next bus arrives.

But if we wonder what it is that keeps more folks from using public transit, we should acknowledge that factors such as feeling unsafe standing near traffic whizzing by on major thoroughfares while waiting on the bus plays a role. So does the fact some of us tend to look down on those who ride the bus."
