What horse is Mr. Halcro riding? Obviously — to me — not the one belonging to the bus-riding public. If moving the Transit Center to Midtown doesn’t make sense to him, it’s likely because he doesn’t ride the bus. The way bus travel exists now, I get on a bus where I live and pay a fare. I take that bus to the Transit Center, catch another bus, pay another fare (whatever happened to transfers?) to get to my destination. This trip necessitates a northbound trip to go south.
Oh, let’s have another study. One which will eat up time and money, eventually coming to the same conclusion to which we bus riders have come years ago.
After using up several columns, Mr. Halcro came around to that answer as well: Move the Transit Center to where the riders are.
