Last word on my opinion about the empty Pittsboro Express bus

Pittsboro, NC - Here's my last word on my opinion about the Pittsboro Express "Ghost" bus.

I need my car for work and cannot ride the bus. I have to run errands for my work daily. When I lived in Chapel Hill, I did not own a car and used the transit system. Wasting fuel and natural resources? That bus running up and down the road all day with two to three passengers is the bigger waste than me driving my car to work.

I stand by what I said. I see the bus several times every day and there are never more than a few riders on it and at times, empty. The times I pass it are between Cole Park and Chapel Hill. Maybe more people get on somewhere else that I am not seeing. I have also seen it many times around the Lowes in Pittsboro with no one on it.

As far as my speeding, I have done that on one or two occasions and mostly to see just how fast this bus was going. I have called the Chapel Hill transit on this and several other buses and reported them for traffic violations that include speeding and running lights.

Don't have the time or inclination to respond to the lengthy comments on the Chatham Chatlist. My opinion is the bus was a BUSt, and I'm glad to see it go. I am sorry it did not work out. The idea was grand but obviously people are not ready for to use mass transit between Pittsboro and Chapel Hill
