Show Us What State-of-the Art BRT Looks Like - Put the Vegas BRT on the Pike
Thanks to Peter Rousselot for winning the argument for putting bus rapid transit on the Pike at Wednesday's Committee of 100 meeting. Since the local media largely function as shills for the status quo, developers, local chambers of commerce, and various special interests it's time for Arlington residents, taxpayers, and voters to see what competing bus and streetcar systems look like - and we're obviously not going to be informed by the local media.
So how about bringing a Vegas BRT to the Pike for a few weeks? Let us see how flexible BRT is - no dedicated lanes required. Let us, not the out-of-state REITs like Vornado, decide what's best for us. Thanks for showing us the YouTube videos of the Vegas BRT.
