Mass transit


Recommended Posts

Just went to our transit agencies web site where they have a nifty savings calculator. Tells you how much you will save by communting on a bus everyday.

 

The whopping savings....  drum roll puleeeeeeze... $13

 

We are increasing gas taxes, spending ungodly amounts of money on transit up here in the PacNW and for what?

 

$13

 

Not to mention the ride takes 2 hours (30 minutes in rush hour by car). Wonder what 3 hours of my wasting time sitting on a bus every day is worth to the economy in opportunity cost?

 

What a load of bullshit!  It is time for a reality check on mass transit systems. What a waste of money.

Register your scoot in the city of Seattle and see what the Monorail tax brings it to..  you'll choke..

 

So much for those nifty $30 license renewal tags... the Monorail tax was an additional $3 bills on the Chief alone last year..

 

Its like a wet Kalifornia now days..  (OK not quite as wet as southern Kalif..)

You must be only driving 5 miles, and not across either of the bridges, or from Tacoma to Seattle, or Everett to Seattle, or from Everett to Bellevue, or from Tacoma to Kirkland, or from Puyallup to Seattle, or from Puyallup to Bellevue, or from Woodinville to Renton.
