One response to “Buses mean business, support sustainable RIPTA”

  1. Aaron

    It’s very disapointing that there has not been more legislative support for RIPTA, save a few champions like Rep. O’Grady and others.  We’ve had legislative commissions study the agency.  We’ve had Transit 2020.  We’ve had strong attendance at committee hearings.  Now we’ve had the Comprehensive Operational Analysis which I believe will make service better overall.  On top of that, RIPTA’s ridership in 2012 grew by over 6%.  And yet, no stable funding bill has been passed.  Hopefully, this is the year, but, as a daily transit rider, I have learned to keep my expectations low.
