Letter: ‘Buses for the people’
Why, when we have substantially below-par bus service, here, in Franklin County, compared to the rest of the state, have we had the freakin’ Taj Mahal of bus stations built? And, this complete with 24/7 cleaning service, solid copper faces, thick slab granite benches and counters, etc? Hmmm? ARRA funds may have paid for it, but why such an extravagant structure? Why does it not say on the FRTA site, WHO the construction company was that got THAT contract?
We, at Franklin County Transportation Justice, are looking for answers. We are also looking for bus routes on weekends and nights. “Leading” local citizens have refused to sign our petition; and, they know who they are, and we know why they won’t sign it. If you have info for us, want questions answered, want more info or want to sign the petition, please go to Franklin County Transportation Justice on Facebook. Let’s ramp it up ! Buses for the people!
