Re: “Training wheels

I really enjoyed the article as the downtown area is very well suited for such a transportation system. Why a trolly with tracks is my question? Couldn't the city and local businesses enjoy the same results with greater flexibility by using the same planned outline but use a bus? Actually two buses running opposite would half the waiting time and get a person across town in no time. No new tracks to add to the roads, just add the buses and run the route. The importance of adding a line to Boise State and Broadway can also be served the same way. The local businesses could also still be approached for some of the adverstising on the buses as well. As gas keeps going up, and we see more and more people riding their bicycles and purchasing scooters and motorcycles that we see parked all over downtown, a simple bus route addition or few can serve this need. The current bus system should also run through to Midnight to allow people who don't work a standard 9-5 shift to commute home on the bus. People going out for dinner or to a show downtown could also take advantage of a later bus service. DUI's could also be lessened knowing one could get home on the bus if it ran later if one had too much to drink. Save the work of putting in tracks and a whole new system is my two cents. Our bus system is our answer and just needs to be tweaked a bit to serve a greater need.
