The series of bus and trolley changes include eliminating:
124 of 213 weekday bus routes.
55 of 100 Saturday bus routes.
26 of 75 Sunday and holiday bus routes.
Light-rail service would be trimmed by cutting hours of operation and increasing the time between trolleys. Besides reducing the number of daily transit vehicle hours, the changes would reduce the number of one-way vehicle trips by 24 percent and overall ridership by 11 percent, the authority has estimated.
Addendum: I keep hearing that it's not the government's job to protect us from harmful substances. Really? Then what's the point of the FDA?
"The legitimate object of government is to do for a community of people whatever they need to have done, but cannot do at all in their separate and individual capacities. In all that the people can individually do as well for themselves, government ought not to interfere." – Abraham Lncoln
I'd argue that addiction weakens the will sufficiently that individuals lose the ability, partialy or totally, to protect themselves.
