Letter: Roaring Fork Transportation Authority could do better

The 7:52 (Aspen Village stop) upvalley bus was 22 minutes late this morning (Dec. 7). A group of us stood out in 10-degree weather for nearly half an hour. We stood there freezing and watching as three bus-rapid-transit buses, two of which were nearly empty, drove by.

Meanwhile, our bus was stuck in traffic in Basalt. When you know the local bus is running so very late, perhaps the bus-rapid-transit buses could stop and pick up the frozen people that are late for work? With three bus-rapid-transit buses going upvalley, they would each only need make one or two extra stops (if that many) on the really frigid days.
