We don’t get paid for our services, but the GUARDIAN is able to provide thinking people of Treasure Valley with transportation alternatives much more logical than those being promoted by Team Dave and the CCDC.
For the cost of the proposed downtown “Trolley Folly” we think a Bus Rapid Transit system (BRT)– similar to previous GUARDIAN proposals ignored by all levels of local government–could work in our area.
For Starters we could establish these express buses on a major route from Meridian to Boise along either Fairview, Franklin, or Overland. Grand Rapids, Michigan has a nine mile route currently in place. Take a look at how they run a BRT.
