Not quite edging out

The headline:

edging out the car

Which makes you think more people now use public transport than vehicles.

during the seven years between census counts, the number of Aucklanders driving to work has fallen 2 per cent to 84 per cent and public transport has increased 2 per cent to 10 per cent.

Not quite edging out. I estimate that at a 2% swing every seven years, public transport will edge out the car in 133 years!

Sensible transport plans for must include both improvements to roads and to public transports.
