Quotes of the night

Went to the city of Alexandria's Strategic Planning meeting for Goal 3, which relates to transportation.

Two "quotes of the night", from one of the meeting attendees:

- (not verbatim, but close) Transit is a "social safety net" and is "equal opportunity". (made in response to a planned $600K cut from DASH)

- (verbatim) If it's not a dedicated bike lane, I'm afraid of traffic.
