Hello, I just wanted to say the "free bus" isn't free. We and the tourist pay bus services through sales tax. I call it "the already paid for bus" :) it's accurate. I think the bus system should be the best and wait times should be short. Everyone benefits from the bus! Since we steamboatians are forced to pay sales tax, and people need transportation I say lets get ridiculous plans (e.g. 9 million dollar police station) and put that into necessities...I've had pleasant experiences commuting on the bus, and awful ones; times where the bus drove past me, which then made me late to appointments. Though I do appreciate the bus driver for taking me where I need to go and thanking him/her for it, we shouldn't let the bus line feel they are doing us a favor, rather we are the employers. I'm always told a vote matters; that my single vote changes everything.....I vote keep that bus rolling and make improvements.
The project is not necessary in my opinion. We could use that money to finish the unfinished sidewalks in town! It's just crazy to walk on a sidewalk or path and have it just end. Or perhaps build a shelter for those in need...or something else that would be a great benefit for the good people of Steamboat Springs. Better idea...lets give that money back to the people to help a little bit for their own healthcare costs... Just my opinion. I respect other ideas for the benefit of the community.
Thank you very much Brian! I believe you we're the guy we talked to a bit yesterday when it happened correct? So you know pretty much what happened.
