Here's another example of a transit agency trying to interact with the public in a way that presents people with real choices. It's from TransLink (greater Vancouver) and it deals with the northeastern suburbs of greater Coquitlam. They invite you first to state your priorities about matters of prinicple ("fewer transfers", "service to more places" etc) and then look at some network scenarios that might illustrate those principles. You then get to rank the scenarios, which invites you to notice whether your principles have shifted once you see their consequences. Check it out. And on an ethical note: Play with it, but don't actually submit your views if you don't live or work or travel there!
