What if we ban cars from downtown during weekdays like Oslo wants to do? We would only allow buses, service trucks, and taxi's downtown.
This would take off thousands of cars off the highway. Money towards bigger highways can be used instead invest for more public transportation. Having no cars downtown would make a rail or true BRT system be easier to implement and more efficient. A car free downtown would encourage compact housing near easy public transportation hubs.
