    Does this proposed plan eliminate buses on Greenmount Avenue?

      Looks like it, except for short stretches. I can’t imagine that flying. Same for Garrison Blvd.

    Utilizing more busses more efficiently is great…

    And why would the traffic delays caused by building the rail line ( which the people living along the proposed route didn’t want) be preferable ?

    As for riders being stranded by overcrowded busses… So, light rail cars can’t ? Try taking any of the DC Metro trains during rush hours ( I did for years, the only thing missing were the “packers”… In Japan, they push people into the packed subway cars so that the doors can close )…

    As for school children and day care centers… The kids can still get to school and day care centers can still offer their services to people using busses just the same as those using light rail…

    As for econnomic development… Why can’t it be done for the busses ? I guess that the developers couldn’t make a financial killing doing so…

    Finally, I find all of the “keening” from those who pushed riding busses over the past 50 years in their battle against autos both amusing and hypocritical…
