As the options are not mutually exclusive, and a gondola is by its definition not disruptive, I still have to disagree. I’d like to push back on a bus lane along this route, in particular. Due to the presence of the BCEC, there’s loads of rideshare vehicles and taxis in the area, which would not mesh well with losing a lane to buses (at best, the uber and taxi drivers would just use the bus lane like it was a normal lane).There other option - buses in a bus lane, or even a surface trolley, would be:
- cheaper to build
- cheaper to operate and maintain
- higher capacity
- more reliable
- less distruptive to public space
Whether the gondola is 'BAD' some abstract sense is sort of beside the point.
And the point is that it is much, much 'WORSE'
