I'd say look no further than Rt 28 for the answer to your question. If I had to make a rough estimate of how many people resided within a mile of that corridor, I'd say you'd have a good 60,000 at least.

I, too, am all for this. If the region's comprehensive plan calls for more of a focus on transit and any development associated with transit (transit oriented development, mixed-use development, higher density development, more investment in central locations of older municipalities, etc), then this should be a top priority.
