Time for a Comprehensive Local Bus Network That Serves Everyone
How much will County taxpayers pay to support Capital Bikeshare next fiscal year? Another pet vanity transit project that rational and sane adults decline to use five months a year. Like during this prolonged winter. Then there's the lack of anything resembling a safety program for bicyclists in general and Capital Bikeshare in particular. Oh, County Government also approves site plans that co-locate hundreds of motor vehicle parking spaces and hundreds of bicycle parking spaces in the same building. Rush hour gridlock on adjacent streets when warm weather finally arrives? Stay tuned.
How much is being poured into seasonal Bikeshare that could be spent on better Metrobus service and more ART Bus routes that can serve everyone year-around? Where is that independent internal auditor? While we're at it, can we have a linked connector bus transit system among local jurisdictions?
