Number Crunching the Bay Area's Parking and Transportation Facts

Number Crunching the Bay Area's Parking and Transportation Facts

I was researching a couple of numerical facts from fiscal year 2010-2011, a few from 2011-2012 so far for the next edition of Finding the Sweet Spot, and things got a little out of hand. If nothing else, there is definitely some bar betting money to be made. Hopefully there is a little something interesting for everyone. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions and opinions from the facts and perhaps collectively we can write the story in the comments section.
