When I saw that the bus system needed help, I decided to ride the bus to work to help at the fare box. I went to many meetings and worked to help planners at SEMCOG remove cars from the roads. I want to see 24/7 bus service to the downtown because I think that having cars on the roads late at night is too dangerous if there is no frequent bus service. I know that buses make Detroit much safer with more people around instead of only on the freeways driving to big parking lots. I think that a city with all parking lots is ugly and think there should be more parks and think if people don't drive everywhere that it will help the city of Detroit get more tourists and will help both SMART and DDOT. I would like to see everyone help these two bus systems by learning the schedules and teaching the children how to use the buses and help fill them all up. That is the purpose of my website and why I'm against the freeway expansions without getting our State leaders to help out the transit advocates. I do not think our friends who support improving mass transit can do this without both strong government and industry leadership. I would like to see more work shuttle buses and if my plan gets attention, you will see how work shuttle buses can connect into the frequent bus lines I propose. I purposely connected all the end points to maximize ridership because making this plan work will require a very high ridership. This is because not everyone lives on these lines, thus won't benefit much from them, thus more needs to come from the riders, if the voters and leaders are to take this plan seriously. Also, this plan adapts to the plans of everyone by making the best use of limited resources.
24 hour a day/ 7 day a week every 12 to 30 minutes maximum full SMART bus service as described with costs, http://savethefueltax.org
