RE: [LandCafe] ALLANTOWN
So you go from subsidising cars to subsidising transit?

If this were to happen the LVT receipts would fall as land values in central
areas are largely dependant on good access.
Hence, it would be better to subsidise public transport than to lose this
In addition, public transport operators currently pay all other taxes (
property taxes, sales taxes, income taxes, NI etc.) and would pay less of
these as LVT replaced them.
In addition land would be cheaper for building new lines etc.
