*gasp* An opinion piece in TW actually making sense? What is this world coming to?
They need to think of transit as a product to be marketed, not just a charity that they grudgingly provide for people who can't afford cars. Keep the buses clean, keep them running on time, and enforce the NO SMOKING signs, and I guarantee ridership will go up.
The streetcar project cost as much as approximately four hundred buses. Just let that sink in.
That statement by the "former arts organization board member" is supremely ironic. Profit(eer)ing from Tucson's dysfunction is exactly what the streetcar represents.
Well said. (In before the SJWs flame you for victim-blaming!)
You seem to have missed the point of the Tea Party. Their purpose is not to win elections; it's to make the increasingly conservative and corporatist Democrats look liberal by comparison. The Tea Party will have won a major victory if Clinton gets the 2016 nomination.
