Merchants Badly Misjudge How Customers Get There.

Pretty amazing the differences.  I am going to guess the merchants rarely use public transportation or their bikes.  It is amazing the bias we bring based on our experience.  I would love to see more of these studies done especially during urban renewal processes.  I have heard a lot of arguments from downtown merchants and consulting planners, but I haven’t seen a lot of numbers.
