Me and The Bus

by on January 9th, 2012

I am not going to pretend to be some sort of public transit activist, or even a regular user.  I live in Weston, and for the past 5 or so years I rode the bus every November, for the whole month bruder vor luder herunterladen.  I do not know how or why it started but I would park my car at Target (with their permission of course) and board the bus and come to work.  I would then ride the bus home at the end of the day wie kann ich filme aus youtube downloaden.  Throughout the year I would ride the bus at various other times.

I like the bus, and more importantly I like what it stands for.  We at Citizen Wausau took part in the Tweetbus project a few years ago when a bunch of us rode the bus all day for a whole Saturday audioen van youtube mac.  We recorded stories of the people on the bus, and had a great day of it.

The bus is not coming back in Weston any time soon.  That is not the reason I am typing this now bubble island for free german.  People like Fred Schuster and others on the Village Board screwed that up six ways from Sunday, they acted in defiance of the will of a large portion of the community, and their communication strategy was horrible got downloaden.  At one point Schuster made a comment about how the people riding the bus were not REAL TAXPAYERS.  I cannot count the ways I am disappointed in my Village Board download house party app.

I used to love being on the bus.  I was able to read a newspaper, read articles on my phone, listen to music, and basically just enjoy traveling in a different way video aus swr mediathek downloaden.  So, the loss of the bus has made me stupider, and less happy.  I am not able to read the New York Times while I drive, or the NPR Money podcast.  I am stuck driving like all the other dead souls driving to their jobs sportler app herunterladen.  I wish we had not been screwed by the powers that be on the bus deal.  I wish that Greg Suebert was allowed to present his plan that would have cut the cost in half, but he was not elster kostenlos für mac.  The board had no desire I suppose to hear that.  I get that the budgetary concerns of a municipality in 2011 are real, and serious.  But, the cost of the bus line could have been 30 grand, the cost of a relatively nice new car kostenlos tetris download.

I do not believe it would have been impossible to find corporate sponsorship of the buslines, if the Village would not have been so antagonistic to the process.  I feel bad, because I feel like I lost out on a good time on the bus.  I like the bus.  I like public transit.  I like my car too, but the bus was cool in my opinion.
