    80 percent of my personal local travel being by bicycle with rest mix (mainly) of HEV and then subway.

    There are lots of ways to calculate transportation #s and impacts.  DC subway does pretty well, as well, against vehicles. NYC has the largest single impact of a transit system because of such a broad range of people who can live w/out vehicles. DC's metro doesn't support this for most people.

      Bicycling doesn't work for most people...especially in the DC area, where the commutes can be long...and hot...and hilly, etc.... It's getting easier to do -- especially as a way to get to and from Metro, but that works for people who are fit enough and who don't have a lot to take with them.

      I think it's great that some people can get around easily on bikes, but ti's wrong to assume that everyone could do the same if they just put their minds and legs to the cause. Too many bicyclists don't understand this.
