Tuesday, Nov. 21, 2006 | This is in response to Charles Kratz’s letter on transportation. I agree with him in many points. We can’t possibly have door-to-door service to everyone. I do think more might be done. As gas prices have gone up, so has ridership. At the same time service has been cut. Instead of the MTS strutting its stuff so that high ridership will be maintained even after gas prices decline, they do the opposite. However, I am a public transportation commuter, and there is standing room only many times. It is always full on both trolley and bus when I ride during rush hour, and often the same during non-rush hours. Mr. Kratz must be looking at the buses after 9 at night.
