They are deliberately making it harder to drive in Columbus, turning car lanes used by thousands of people a day into bike lanes used by only a few dozen, and only in good weather. The resulting congestion will help drive the "need" for a trolley.

Trolley or light rail are unrealistic. Inter- City rail eg. Columbus to Clev and Cinci makes far more sense. Would take cars off the interstate for many who commute or visit.Would create lots if jobs for manual labor and skilled workers.

Yeah, but it looks a LOT better than it did.

One article I read made a good point about trains vs. busses: Because the tracks are permanent, people can visually see where there is a route as opposed to busses.
