Why don't these people live somewhere like Charlottesville where we actually have a bus system?

Oh, because they are poor and city council is more concerned about raising taxes and fees to pay for stupid crap rather than make it easier for people to live here.

What a stupid comment.

As a tax payer, I am happy to see some of my money go to programs that still matter in my community. You're probably some "conservative" idiot who rails against people on government assistance, and yet here you are railing against a public service that a member of the working poor class is using, trying to do the right thing and not take handouts. What an idiot.

I am a fiscal, Goldwater conservative, and yes, programs like these should receive funding in our community. It's a basic service that our government should have the resources for

jaunt is not for just the poor. I've taken the jaunt bus when my car was in the shop. I don't have any family in c'ville to rely on. it's not any different than taking the Westminster Canterbury bus.
