Fred Duckels 4 days, 17 hours ago on Our view: Well-funded transit system a must

The bus guru's have been fighting the urge to charge a fee. I think that they perceive that this will cut into the already sparse usage. Passenger mile costs are off the charts if we are concerned with sustainability. like most of our progress it depends heavily on a government handouts.

This idea has been my priority from day one, common sense and a suppression of egos may be in the offing. I don't begrudge my law enforcement a Ferarri but we don't need two.

It will not be so easy to unseat Randy as his district is not gerrymandered to elect a Democrat as is DMB's "There ought to be a law" is a knee jerk reaction, There already is a law and we don't need politicos trying to reinvent the wheel to get attention.

Let's assume that we have moved on and all of today's problems are behind us. It is difficult for me to be optimistic that the future will be any better. Government entities are unwieldy by nature and this may be just another day at the office.

Let's consider some real meat, I don't ride the bus but my tax dollars are used. Why is that different? I'm okay with reasonably full units but most of the year tinted windows hide empty vessels. The airport scenario can be challenged in many ways, user fees seem fair but why not charge for the bus for starters?
