Not if you want to make some revenue it shouldn't be your last concern. How many people would take a train to work downtown instead of driving in and using Edmonton roads without paying for them? Or to a hockey game? Or football? Go out to the Airport and not have to pay for parking? With an LRT you'd be making a return on your investment and maybe the potholes wouldn't be so bad every year. If we had a system like the one I described our public transit would be close to on par or above the rest in North America.
