Excellent Pike Bus Service Will Get Better, Why Waste $200 Million for a Streetcar System?
I checked out WMATA's latest quarterly survey of customers (riders), the Voices of Customers Report for both bus service and rail service on WMATA's Website. Northern Virginia Metrobus riders gave WMATA an overall satisfaction rating of 94%, an 82% satisfaction rating for reliability, and 85% of surveyed riders stated they would recommend Metrobus to others.
The news will get better for bus commuters. General Electric has developed an advanced battery - fuel cell bus that will have zero emissions from the vehicle.
Why is Arlington County proceeding with a wasteful, extravagant, unnecessary streetcar system for Columbia Pike?
