1- TriMet said something about maybe improving bus service if this happens with half of the money. While I have to say this is a bit backhanded, I really think service needs to be restored and even improved.
2- Everyone benefits from new buses. People who ride them, people who see them (less eyesore) and definitely photographers. ;)
3-If we don't... how will TriMet punish us? From what Erik Halstead terrified me with some piece about TriMet using this to say "people don't need the bus" and cut almost all bus service. That literally gave me freaking nightmares after hearing that because I use the bus service to live. I'm such a darn nerd I dreamed I lived in a place where I couldn't get anywhere and all ym friendships went out the window.
Has it ever occured to TriMet that the people who need this bus won't be able to afford the tax, while those who don't can, but don't give a crap about poor people enough to pay it?
4- I can see why teens don't vote, cause frankly, the price doesn't affect me. I don't pay taxes, I'm 16.
That's my piece. Now, if you'll excuse me... I've gotta schedule therapy over my TriMet nightmares.
