#AskNicholas: Ugh, 1-hour buses

Question: How can a 1-hour frequency bus be considered as attractive transportation?

Nicholas: A 1-hour frequency bus line is not an attractive transportation option for most people, and we've talked often about how frequency is important. However, GRTC does not have the budget to run frequent service to all parts of the city, let alone all parts of the region, and their budget comes mostly from government funding. If we want better and more frequent service, we need to ask our elected officials—at all levels of government—to allocate more money to transit. Reducing service in one area to increase it another will just pit citizens in one neighborhood against another. We need more transit service everywhere, and that means more funding, so please let your elected officials know!
