What’s with this Lawrence Transit Service? What is it, 11 years now, and every year the routes get more complex, the stops get fewer and the walks get longer.

Mayor Dever has been instrumental in this endeavor.

I believe the T service should cover more areas in the event someone needs a ride to school, work or to see a doctor.

The bus system in Lawrence is poorly designed and implemented, and has been for a long time.

It should be designed as a "grid" system, and set up so that people can use it to get to and from work without spending 4x as long as it takes to drive.

Originally, it was conceived as more of a social program than a true public transportation program, which explains some of the problems. But, it's been a long time since then, and we could easily have made it more usable to more people by now.
