But, The New York Times reports in a poignant story this week, the buses have drawn violent ire from competing -- and cutthroat -- minibus taxi firms, as well as suburban opposition thatsome officials describe as a classic case of not-in-my-backyard resistance. In a letter to the city, the neighborhood association's members welcomed a mass transit system but opposed what they considered hastily and ill-conceived routes that they said would pollute the air, cause traffic to spill onto side streets, increase crime, and damage property values.A neighborhood activist's contention that "this is not a race issue" -- because some rich black people now live in the suburban area too -- notwithstanding, South Africa's history of prejudice undoubtedly plays a role in the opposition to the BRT lines.
But the idea that public transportation introduces an undesirable element is not unique to Johannesburg.People Living a Green Lifestyle Rated Unattractive The story brought to mind a survey I read some years ago in which participants were asked to rank the attractiveness of different people based on descriptions of their habits. Consistently, the hypothetical people who engaged in environmentally friendly behaviors -- from line-drying clothes to riding the bus -- were rated less attractive and perceived as belonging to a lower social class.
The only exception was recycling -- a seeming inconsistency that I thought actually made perfect sense.
If people are recycling, that demonstrates that they have the means to consume in the first place.

It doesn't require cutting back, like the other examples did.Though the survey was published as the "green" lifestyle was just becoming news, the general idea behind it seemed to be borne out by subsequent trends. Driving a Prius and eating organic food -- both behaviors demonstrating the ability to consume -- became "hot" and attractive. Going car-free and using a clothesline stayed on the fringe.Whether in South Africa or in the United States, if people continue to perceive using public transportation as something only done by poor people, minorities, or members of other disadvantaged or "less desirable" demographics -- or, as my dad once put it, "Don't you know what kind of people ride the bus?" -- they won't want to support it with their taxes, much less hop on themselves.
