Much Fanfare & Hype was made in promoting the mismanaged transportation tax dollars that was spent in "building" the project affectionately called the "BusWay to NoWhere".
To help jumpstart the ridership the launch week was a "Free Ride for Everyone" & of course all of the news stations had their reporters taking the buses to assist in the promotions.
Where there are cameras there have also been known to appear some elected officials... who of course want to justify the money spent...
You know; to dig up a historical old cemetery for the buses to ride through & turn our historical landscapes into very poor imitations of Any Big City USA.
Sadly CT suffers from Big City Envy instead of celebrating it's historical richness & boosting Tourism... but that is a whole other post for another day
With FREE RIDES being offered all Launch Week you would think that all of the buses would be filled with thrilled happy riders as the politicians said they would be...
Well problem with the politicians & the people who were getting rich on the BusWay to NoWhere project is that none of them RIDE the buses to begin with!
They do not understand what it's like to wait for a bus in the bitter cold with 2 children to know where & when to make the routes!
They do not have the slightest clue of where people want to go nor the times that people want to travel to those places...
Why because they do not live among us.
They drive fancy expensive cars to their offices not ride the buses with us so they do not care about what WE The People Need or Want!
