Portland, Oregon is one of the best transit cities I have seen in the Canada and the USA. TriMet System .... The city re-hauled the entire system, and I believe had strong corporate support to minimize infrastructure costs to residential tax payers. The accolades certainly are well deserved. Quick, cheap, or in business core is free and comfortable. Convenient and bicycle friendly, and resulted in removing a lot of vehicle traffic. It should be a model for other cities.
