To the editor:
I am a 14-year-old eighth-grader at Central Junior High. I think the T bus should be kept in Lawrence because that is how I get around. I take the bus to the skateboard park, the indoor pool and crosstown friends' houses. There is no way I would be able to do those things without the bus because both of my parents have to work during the day.
It is most likely that I will not be able to get a car at the age of 16 so I will still be using the bus then. The bus is good for the environment as well. If people use the bus to travel as opposed to driving their own cars, we don't spend as much money on gas and we will not pollute the environment as much.
Many people ride the bus to get to work on a day-to-day basis, I have noticed, and if the bus gets removed, then what are they supposed to do? If the T bus gets removed, I will also not be able to get to the skate park; where else would I skate? The Lawrence bus has to stay.
