Las Vegas investing in bus service

http://www.metro-magazine.com/News/Story/2012/03/RTC-Southern-Nevada-to-install-150-solar-bus-shelters.aspx

The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) announced its plans to install 150 new solar-powered bus shelters throughout the Las Vegas Valley as part of its federally funded transit amenities program.

(Wait...TriMet claims federal funds can't be used on bus amenities?)

“As a result, these 150 new bus shelters are estimated to save taxpayers about $54,000 a year in energy costs.”

(Whoa, a transit agency using federal funds to improve service AND cut costs????  Haven't I been saying that all along?)

The purchase and installation of the 150 new energy-saving shelters is funded by a $1.8 million formula grant from the Federal Transit  Administration FTA that must be allocated for transit enhancement projects such as transit shelters.

(You mean...there's a specific federal grant program that pays for bus shelters?!!!)

In total, the RTC has approximately 3,500 transit stops valley-wide and 1,500 stops have shelters.

(Let's see...1,500 of 3,500 is... 43% of bus stops have shelters, in a city in the high desert?!!!)

"More and better" yea sure....

Leaving #trimet tigard TC two guys in the back apparently feel that "fuck" is every third word. Another reason 97% don't ride #trimet

23 riders aboard #trimet 94 tr 0606 leaving 99W and Walnut... Cut Twitter/Facebook posts not #trimet bus service!!

Is the CRC a $3 Billion Light Rail project with a $380 million highway component!


To estimate what the bridge should cost, take the square footage of the deck of the I205 bridge and inflation adjusted it. Next calculate the square footage of deck of a 12 lane bridge from Evergreen Blvd to Hayden Island. They are within a couple percent of the same, therefore the CRC bridge should cost about the same as the, inflation adjusted, I205 bridge, $382 million.The other $3 billion is the true cost of the light rail project!

This is funny

The next time you see the west side maintenance take a look at the seat.

It's duct taped all up!
You know if the maintenance truck is all duct taped up we are in big shit!!

Media just spitting back Macfarlanes lies and distortions
