While transportation advocates struggle in Washington to derail the priorities that have shaped transit spending for the last 50 years, it is also important to understand how federal funding is only the first part of the transit pie.
For the past two weeks Bus Riders Union members and volunteers have
been going out on the 720 buses and asking people to write comments of
support for the bus only lanes. Find out what people have been saying!
"If buses are moving well, and carrying more people than the car
lanes, the bus lane looks empty most of the time. Only a failing or
obstructed bus lane looks like it's full of buses. That's why bus
lanes such a hard sell in cities run by motorists who want to do the
green thing but still form their impressions from behind the wheel."
