The Bus Riders Union is making their rounds to neighborhood council meetings and other organizations asking for support in the consent decree extension and a few more items:

  • No fare increases and service cuts
  • 3,000 bus fleet by 2010
  • Prioritizing and securing funding for the Wilshire Bus-Only Lane from Downtown to Santa Monica (plus implementing 10 bus-only lanes by 2010)
  • Moratorium on rail and subway expansion until all consent decree obligations are met and a platform for a first class bus system is adopted.

How much do you agree with all or some of their points?
