      Good article but it gets a bit rickety at times.
      I would love to see profiles of bus riders. In
      our county riders range from a Chair of Academic
      Department who owns and operates a ranch with her
      husband, to folks struggling with homelessness
      and really, everything in between. Our transit
      system really is far reaching. Most folks mention
      pocketbook savings as a reason for riding. I
      push the environmental aspet of bus riding versus
      car driving.
