Who are you to tell Lanta how to run their business. Maybe the Hellertown buses are the least crowded even if the ones you rode were full. Here is an idea, buy your own buses and start your own business and if you are correct you will make a mint.

Excuse me, but why shouldn't a bus come to hellertown? Shouldn't a community be provided with this service? No ones asking for a free ride. All we want is safe transportation and to keep as many drunk drivers off the road as possible. obviously you dont care about that though since it probably doesn't pertain to you, but it does to a couple hundred of us in Hellertown. It seems to me you don't ride a bus to musikfest so therefore you have no grounds to say that the buses are not crowded. Every single bus i rode was packed with people from Hellertown. i don't even know why you put your two cents in. Oh, and start our own bus company..are you retarted? That's like saying o hey lets open up our own gas station everybody becuase we don't like the gas prices. It doesn't really work that way. All we want is a safe fun time at fest.

Kelly, judging by your ranting and name calling it is obvious you are not an educated person. He never commented on the traffic, or the drunks and did not say the buses were empty or full but according to Lanta they are not. The point that you missed is that Lanta has the right to make a business decision even if it inconveniences you, me or anybody else.

As for putting his two cents in, that is what this forum is for.

well when it's something you look forward to since us uneducated people can't afford big cruises and fancy vacations like you big shots its nice to have a little fun huh? America is about standing up for what you want, why wouldn't we fight it. We don't want people like you, whom this affects not, going against something that doesnt have anything to do with you. if you dont care dont post.

I completely agree with Kelly. Obviously the people on this comment board besides her don't depend on the bus as an only mode of transportation to the festival and back. It provides safe transportation for intoxicated people (AS THE ORIGINAL LETTER STATES) and safe transportation for people who are elderly, or cannot drive because they do not have a license, or simply because they are too young to have a license.

I believe Hellertown is a growing community, and the bus provides service to our town all the other days of the year! Why cut it during the most profitable time? Hellertown's only 5 minutes away from the Musikfest area!

That is an ignorant comment John because all of the PRs live in allentown and not hellertown.

What a stupid letter written by a whining little imbecile. Drive yourself of don't go. Who cares if you're there anyway? I sure don't. I'm playing the world's smallest violin for you right now whiner.

Well just for all the people who didn't care, we got the bus back. It's running limited service at 6pm, 7pm and 8pm FROM HELLERTOWN. The bus BACK TO HELLERTOWN from Musikfest will run from 6:30pm to 11:30pm on every half hour. The bus will ONLY run from Walnut Street to Cherry Lane in Hellertown, not all the way to Giant anymore.

Apparently, if you really want something, and protest it enough, you'll get what you want eventually.
