hourly updates on the success of the trolley? Most of our readers can't get enough of people using various forms of transportation. Maybe you could interview each and every person (meaning the same three people) as they get on and off the taxpayer-supported conveyance.

Why is it that every year, we refer to how much improved ridership is over the previous year, yet the previous year, we say how great a success the shuttle is? Doesn't that mean the previous years were crap as far as ridership, but the people in charge just decided to shove it through anyway? If ridership tails off next year, can we do away with this whole boondoggle?

with Could we have. Not once yet this summer have I seen a Shuttle with even half capacity. Who the hell is this town trying to kid? The same goes for the free Park and Ride. I defy any town Trustee, official, or even our Mayor to provide proof that there are ever more than 12 vehicles in that parking lot at any one time, except of course maybe during an event at the fairgrounds. And this town wants to build more parking? Can't we find a more practical way to waste money?
I have seen it empty

on numerous occasions. In other states, they charge for the shuttle to pay the driver's wages. Why not let every taxpayer have a crack a driving it, rather than pay for the current driver's crack.
