Cars and buses

I've been reading all the information on global warming, overcrowding, cost of gas and finally transportation problems. Don't they seem to be all the same problem? In our quest for a sustainable Olympics we've spent huge money on a useless highway that is just going to increase the above mentioned problems.

Raise the price of gas, and make it really difficult to drive private vehicles (with or without snow tires). With the infrastructure money from all the parking spaces and snow removal and other services we can set up a proper public transportation service throughout Whistler and the Sea to Sky corridor. Spend that money on grants to make the buses and taxis more fuel efficient and there will be more room for the buses and other forms of transport to get where they are going.
