...not practical but yes, the statement is definitely made...

...i say "props, gentlemen, total props !!!"...
 
I'm just wondering how many of those bikes are actually locked up and if I can steal a green one.
 
Fantastic! Talk about visualising the huge amounts of wasted space for car parking
 
@BGW: Indeed!

@Reese: Ha ha!
 
@Andre: There's a photo around somewhere from Denver RTD where they compared the space taken up by 30 people in cars (lots), bikes (much less) and a bus (one bus load). I wish I could find it. They did this in the Elitch Gardens parking lot about seven or eight years ago.
 
The answer to life, the universe and everything is 42!

The picture of cars vs bus is at the Union Station light rail station.

@-p - it's a powerful illustration.

@Anon 9:11 - Any idea where to find that RTD image? It was very good.

@Nicolas - Thanks for that.
