Who wants to go to Birdsboro?? Whats there??
Why not increase service to routes that have the highest amount of riders?

More riders, more routes mean less cars on the streets, that would be a good thing. Reading routes typically run every twenty minutes, that seems fine to me. money should be used to promote ridership as well, increase the ridership and they will be able to put even more buses on.

excuse me,,, but we are human beings to, with needs, cabs don't want to come out here, unless your going to reading. and even then they give you a hard time.( and who can afford a 25.00 cab!!!!!! ONE WAY !!) I once waited 4 hrs for a cab to catch a bus to ny, yes 4 hrs, missed the bus. but i do think the route should continue up center rd to 422 west, then make the turn, not go back up lincoln, your still addressing the same riders, not additional riders. i cannot use this bus, unless i walk over to lincoln from 422 in baumstown, quite a walk. to walmart is an hr walk, down 422, very dangerous. i've done it. i was so happy, but now, to me, its useless, i have a bad back, and knees,i can't do all that walking. and my friend was planning to use it to get to work,( he might walk to lincoln) now i might have to drive him, at least to walmart, and try and get a kid ready for school at the same time.

I think the "suburbs" should have access to BARTA as we all pay for it with out tax dollars. I figure it can help some people from Birdsboro get to work as well. I hope they make is work for those people.

It is not just to take the city people to the Fairgrounds Mall after all.

It would be nice to have more service like that in the Easton area and the surrounding townships. Then maybe our roads would not be so clogged.
