Buses can help reduce traffic

In response to the letter "Why should cars subsidize buses?": I'd like to propose a theory why bus subsidies could be connected to car tabs.
See, I assume the intent of subsidies are to help increase the number of buses on the road. With more buses on the road, more people can ride them.
With more people riding the buses, there would be less cars on the road.
With less cars on the road, you don't have to be stuck behind traffic as much as well as more parking spaces and less people driving just below the speed limit. At least that's how I understand it.
Buses aren't the most perfect solution, but they're better than adding more traffic to our commutes.
