Mama Says: Public transit is a service best provided by government after government's other functions are funded, not as a term of endearment for the politicians seeking votes. The simple fact is that 98 percent of taxpayers should not be asked to pay more taxes so 2 percent can have a ride, especially when that very system burdens the coffers to the tune of $8 million each year. Just to put it in perspective, that's $80 million in the red over 10 years, folks. Do we really have that kind of money to throw at any issue?
Dusty: Sounds like the citizens of Clayton County need to put their heads together and figure out how they can solve this problem themselves. How about some car pools? How about a private bus system? If there are a great number of people who want to ride a bus, as indicated here, it seems like a bus line would pay. If so, talk to your country officers again. Crying in the wind about seniors and floor-sleeping workers will do no good. Use your head to solve your problems and not depend on someone else to do it for you. Then something good might happen, including self-determination and independence.
