Chron: high gas prices makes Metro appealing

Owen Courreges points out that in today’s Chronicle editorial on high gas prices, the editorial board takes an opportunity to promote Metro:

The more the price of gasoline increases, the better Houston Metro’s $2 day pass for bus or light-rail service starts to look.

Aha. This would be the bus service that continues to be cut and “improved,” and the light rail service that covers a whopping 7.5 miles of downtown streets.

Probably not.

By the way, I wonder if the Chronicle is putting its advocacy into practice yet, by getting rid of its parking garage, or if Metro has cancelled a planned parking area for its senior staff?
