Very well done, guys!

Well thought-out, well-summarized, and well-presented.  You guys once again have run rings around anything JTA has yet been able to present.  The individuals responsible for this presentation should be working for and running JTA, instead of the majority of hired dolts in there now.  Brilliant.  And you even 'drew it out in crayon,' so that anyone with a handful of neurons could understand and form their own logical conclusion.

Excellent job! Now how can we share the video? Where is the YouTube link or embedding codes? This must be spread far and wide to as much of the JacKsonville public as possible. Awareness creates action.

Thanks again for all the work you guys have put into this.

Wow, you've hit this one out of the park. If the current administration can't see the issue with their plans, then they are just beyond hope and we are all doomed. Awesome!

Guys, your video is Fantastic.  The presentation along with associated facts and comments was very well done.  You should be proud and I am sure you can see by the comments so far, the metrojacksonville community is very proud of you as well.  I know you hit your mark with this presentation and the effect of what you shared today will rock JTA's boat and ripple throughout City Hall.  Good on you guys!

Great job, let's hope today is a turning point in this issue.

BTW, someone (JTA) should be sending you guys about $250k for the 'consulting' work.

Brilliant!
This should be required viewing for every adult in Duval County.
I just wonder how the JTA will try and defend their stance?
Maybe point to the one or two BRT systems around the country that work, and as usual ignor the fact that all smart cities are going with some form of rail?
BRAVO!
