We need cheaper, better public transportation


Question: Do you know why city buses have blackout windows?

Answer: So nobody can see how few people ride on them!

I'm not against public transportation; it's a service that is important to many in our county. What I question is why we have these $300,000 vehicles with very expensive drivers transporting one or two people around. Why don't we use something like Ride On. It would be more convenient for the user; they wouldn't have to walk to the bus stop and then walk from another bus stop to their destination. Yes, Ride On will pick them up and drop them at a specific location.

I realize the county will have to subsidize a service like this, but it will be less than what we are currently paying and provide better service to the users.
