Transit Honcho Seyz Kansas City Freebie Bus Pays Off In Social Justice Dividend

Dead-tree money line . . .

"As Zero Fare transit looms on the horizon, we can all clearly see that the return on investment in social justice, compassion and empathy far outweigh the return on investment in concrete and asphalt."

Bus service or microtransit? JoCo is moving in wrong direction on public transportation

Johnson Countians will soon face critical choices about quality mass transit and establishing a robust, dependable service that can move workers to jobs. Unfortunately, some county commissioners want to head in the wrong direction. That was obvious last week when t he seven-member commission met to discuss transit options.

If the purpose of the bus is to provide a service, & if you acknowledge that this service is used exclusively by poor people, then it should be free.

Let the rich pay for it.

My son is taking part in a social experiment. He has to wear a Bernie 2020 t-shirt for 2 weeks and see how people react. So far he's been spit on, punched and had a bottle thrown at him! I'm curious to see what happens when he goes outside.

Why do I have to provide for lazy fucks like Byron? I think not, pay to ride or get to walking.

Another point is I don't want to see free bus service so the hood elements can freebie ride down to where I live.

11:56: And yet Bernie is doing quite well in the polls, so someone must want him for president. Weird.

^^^^^They said the same thing about Hillary and we all saw how that ended.

^^^^^Good point, but she did win 3 million more votes than Trump, so someone even wanted her. Go figure.

Unsigned editorial opinion piece. That's classy!

Okay what ever 1:41 but she didn't get the votes in the areas that really counted. So she lost and so will Bernie.

Fuck social justice. People don’t move to Joco to get social justice, they move there to get away from it.

Social justice for me is that I get to live in a bad-ass house with bad-ass cars and get to fuck some really beautiful women.

^^^^In your dreams--especially the beautiful women.

The JoCo routes are empty because the routes run irregularly. It’s an undependable mode, especially now that KCATA has some control over it. TheJoe was nice but service has changed.

The JoCo routes that I see are very full in the early morning and late afternoon. They should think about adding to those. I don't know about the routes that run early afternoon, midday and early afternoon to some parts of JoCo. The buses usually show up on time or close to it, even when the weather is bad, but occasionally they are late because of weather, mechanical issues or traffic delays.
