^Honestly, I think PnR's are a good thing. It still allows drivers to go a certain distance without driving the entire commute. There are lots that will take the train but don't want anything to do with a bus.
Yes, they make good sense except to those who have an aversion to cars. As we know, neighborhood transits service frequency is not that great or barely existent, particularly in newer neighborhoods where commuters may come from.
So, you have to walk perhaps some significant distance to a bus stop and hope it is not too early or late, then you have to hope it connects smoothly with the LRT. Of course if you work early or late, the bus service frequency may be much lower.
LRT is great which is why so many people want more of it. Bus service, not so much.
