Vote to improve transit

Dear Editor:As someone who has worked for transit improvements in this valley for 10-plus years, I want to ask the voters in Aspen to take advantage of a real opportunity to greatly improve transit in Aspen. Please vote for a new bus lane between Buttermilk and the roundabout. This is a giant step towards addressing quality of life and environmental issues and will help make transit the preferred choice for traveling to Aspen.The alternative is NOT a four-lane – it is one lane of traffic for everyone going either way on the Maroon Creek Bridge. And this is not just another opinion vote, it will actually fix a huge portion of the 1.8 mile entrance.Please vote yes on Ballot Question No. 1 on Tuesday, May 8.Jacque R. WhitsittBasalt
