Indeed. Because the current system is at capacity. UPass made things worse becuase many more people use it now. You can park at Greenboro and be at Carleton in 10 minutes and pay much less than you would for parking at Carleton.
While we need a proper LRT, I don't like the current plans. It's also the reason for widening the hyway - to allow a bus lane to repalce the Transitway. Once LRT is going, that lane will be converted to carpool (HA!).
