She should have to personally pay for the costs to send the bus out to pick up
the passengers on the bus.I don't believe positioning yourself in
front of a train running at 80 mph was ever part of the 1900's lifestyle
either.Why is riding transportation that can carry large amounts of
people quickly without sitting for hours in traffic not in line with a 2000's
lifestyle?Busses are great for some things, but they are subject to
traffic, whereas trains are not.Everything has a tradeoff, such as
trains will get you to the station quicker, but may not be quite as close to
your intended destination. What is important is to have a variety of options so
there will be something that works for everyone.I ride my bike when
I can and the bus is my fallback for bad weather or if my bike has a flat. When
I-15 closed down recently, frontrunner was the backup for many people that
didn't want to sit and wait for 2 hours in the car or drive halfway to Evanston
and back. Choice.
This is the problem with rail transit. A rail incident shuts down the line. A
single bus collides with another vehicle and the other bus service continues.
Rail transit is a 1900's technology that does not fit the 2000's
