Bow Down in Grateful Subservience

RECEIVED Fri., Jan. 17, 2020

Dear Editor,
    Capital Metro really is "unique." How many other Texas public transit agencies made it their apparent mission to delete public access to hospitals, health care clinics, libraries, government offices, and other facilities which are either funded by the public or are serving a critically disadvantaged population such as people with disabilities, seniors, and or limited/no English proficiency? CEO Randy Clarke never questioned his subordinates' fantasy of eliminating routes and stops just when this city rapidly grows! Increasing the number of required transfers is merely shuffling around "the cards" and does not increase actual ridership. How many people will voluntarily add on an extra hour to sitting on the public transit system when they previously did not have to? The faster all Capital Metro personnel and contractors learn to bow down in grateful subservience to taxpayers, the [faster the] city of Austin can finally access mobility.
