When you buy a car, you're lending them money that they eventually pay you back so you can pay off your car and afford a new one. They use the promise of car payments to solicit stock investors to give them money on that end. Now they're giving a multimodal transportation vision a chance and if the public proves that we will make them as much money without selling as many cars, they'll give us a break from all the congestion, pavement, and sprawl. If they are unsatisfied, it will be back to the whipping post, though.
