I agree that Albemarle County should pay to have more bus routes. Charlottesville residents bring a lot of money to their stores. Such as Fashion Square Mall, K-mart, Wall mart and all the other businesses that are in Albermarle County.

This wouldn't be an issue if the planners would stop using. Got to be using knowing the bus routes in this town.

are these the huge buses we see with 40 seats and 2 passengers on them?

It never ceases to amaze me that spend and tax liberals do not give a damn about costs versus benefit.

Precisely. And those two passengers, who ride on the taxpayers' dime for the most part, in all likelihood also live on the taxpayers dime. Thanks be to Thee, from all Thy sheeple; Barack Hussein-as-salaam-alaikum Oba-a-a-ma, mmm, mmm, mmm!

they are probably planning the benefit of encouraging mass transit, moving employees to work, less cars, pollution than subsidizing poor riders, much as you'd like to portray it

When will the user fee support the cost? A little more than free would help offset the cost. Another handout!

I guess it never will. Just another government handout.
I'm flying to Florida. Does CATS have planes too? I want my free ride too because I deserve it!
