Community Transit

Can't get around own community

Here's an extreme example of what the cell phone circuitry is doing to our $10 million transportation GPS system. (Article, "Community Transit's GPS to let riders track buses.") It took me (an 80-year-old) five busses and 15 blocks of walking downtown Everett to get back home.
Oh! And I no longer can go to church, theater and no Anthony's due to lack of transit system. I don't need a bus to Lynnwood via Evergreen Way every 10 minutes. (I see maybe eight people or zero on that line -- I can't even go to Farmers Market on the docks.)
Twenty years ago we had a boat business on those docks -- I loved the Restaurant Center!
