- It means first 3 factor which are traffic congestion, longer commuting trips, growing demand for housing - have all eliminated.

But cost is the only factor which is not eliminated.. perhaps due to cheaper cost in ruler places.

please correct me if I am wrong.

"all but eliminated" = "almost completely eliminated."
