These politicians congratulate themselves for stealing from the public and ripping off the taxpayers to pay for this pathetic bus system whose only purpose is to transport criminals from one end of the city to the other to keep them in business!

Complete waste of money and a danger to the community. I'm sure that the criminal who murdered the elderly couple from Kentwood in January was a big fan of the "Rapid."

What a joke. I always vote against the millage for this stupid thing.
