Letter: Too many empty buses

Too many empty buses

I hate to complain, but when is RFTA going to admit their bus rapid transit is a goofy idea? How long will Dan Blankenship keep running empty and nearly empty buses up and downvalley to Aspen during the middle of the day every 10 to 12 minutes?

After morning worker bees buzz to work and before they fly back to down valley hives, hardly any bees ride these begrimed, belching behemoths. I would wager that the cost of fuel-per-passenger miles has seen a dramatic decrease in economic efficiency.

Valley workers would be much better served with more downvalley/hogback bus routes and more spaces for the park and rides than wasting money running empty buses in and out of Aspen every 10 to 12 minutes.
