I rode the bus down the road once.
A journal world survey is already biased based on the fact only those who do not work or have access to a computer during day working hours vote or care and even of those, unless they can state a confidence interval, should acknowledge that there could not be the least chance that this survey has any basis in reality. So for those of you who are so against helping your fellow man should know better than to assume that these JW surveys have any credance. Except for those who have personally taken a survey of every person who road the bus.
I see every single person that road the bus last year voted.
I have NO idea regarding costs, but I'd be more inclined to support bike paths being built to hit all of the major roads in Lawrence, making it possible for people to ride safely to all destinations in town. This might include adding paths east of Iowa street on 23rd, 9th street, 6th Street, 19th Street, Iowa Street, Naismith Dr. to KU, and Main Street down to the hospital area. A route might also be run along N. 2nd Street, as well. This sounds costly, but then public transportation could be curtailed to support only senior citizens, and those with disabilities.
May sound like too much, but I might actually USE the bike paths . . . . and lots of others would benefit by being able to get to all destinations in town according to their own schedule, instead of walking to bus stops, only to wait long periods of time.
Just my two cents . . .
If some of the extended hours were on the KU on Wheels buses, I might consider using it. However, being a student they don't get my fare money. I do believe something comes out of tuition though.
I think $150,000 is from fedgov for mass transportation.
Wow...I had no idea the city had some extra money laying around to do this!
Public transit (anywhere) very seldom even 'breaks even' $$ wise.
Would these people still be interested in riding if the expansion in hours was accompanied by a FARE INCREASE?? Hmmmm??
Might be more efficient for the city to contract with local can companies for this service using vouchers, etc. Might be less expensive than the $250,000 budget expense proposed and it would help local business owners.
If a majority said yes, and actually did ride it, they'd need to add more buses.
More people would ride the T if the routes were not so convoluted.
Wow, 9 yes votes. The empTy will definitely go in the black!
Extended hours would allow me to do things I cannot do now. It will also give my teenager more options.
Yes is in the minority so the commission will do it. Schumm does not have the guts to raise the fares
