New buses?
« on: June 14, 2007, 07:10:29 AM »
Has anyone else noticed that JTA seems to be getting a fleet of new buses?  Although BRT is a hot-button issue right now, I must otherwise congratulate JTA on replacing some of their old and decrepit buses with shiny new ones, and making our city look just a little bit better by doing such.

Yes, congrats to JTA for attempting to upgrade the fleet.  Its already bad enough trying to trick the general public to take the bus.  At least lets make the existing system more user friendly and efficient, before trying to reach the moon with some of the future transit plans.

Funny thing is, they don't seem to be Gilligs BRT model! So what is JTA thinking. Ooops, I know, NEVER use JTA and THINKING in the same sentence.
