Many people won’t ride a bus

As I posted to the Regional Transportation Commission’s website, it is being shortsighted in choosing bus rapid transit over light rail. As a person who is car-centered here in Las Vegas (in other cities I use light rail), I would not use bus rapid transit. I don’t care how sleek the bus is, it’s still a bus. And I’m sure I’m not the only person to think that way.

If the RTC’s goal is to get people out of their cars, then bus rapid transit is not the way forward.
