Fellow riders, rejoice!

We’re not just limited to core routes. The latest word is that Capital Metro is rolling today and that today’s schedule will be the customary one.

    Will Wynn comes through (perhaps another reason he’ll Wynn again. har de har.)

    I was plenty pissed with the 1/29 Statesman article stating “Perhaps the only faction unlikely to feel much pain from the situation is the public at large…for most Austinites, a strike would be a spectator sport.” Yeah–only 85,000 boarders a day: people with disabilities who can’t drive, people who are too old to drive, students who need to zip back and forth between UT and ACC, and workers who have the kind of jobs that dock your pay when you don’t show up once and fire you if you don’t show up twice.

    I guess the Statesman doesn’t think we count for much.

    I depend on the bus to get to school and my son depends on it to get to work. In a pinch, I could walk the 2.5 miles to school. But my son’s just moved further out, where the rent is cheaper–and the bus is his only mode of transportation.

    So hooray for Will Wynn for stepping up to the challenge. I’m impressed with the leadership he demonstrated here as well as his handling of the Katrina crisis. Plus he pardoned South Austin’s goat.

    You have to remember that the Statesman readership is disproportionately suburban – to them, nobody DOES ride the bus, because most of them don’t get any closer to the center-city than 183 and Mopac.
