Letter: RFTA rapid transit is a goofy idea

Bruno Kirchenwitz

I hate to complain, but when is RFTA going to admit its BRT rapid transit is a goofy idea? How long will Mr. Blankenship keep running empty and nearly empty buses up and downvalley to Aspen during the middle of the day every 10 to 12 minutes?

After morning worker bees buzz to work and before they fly back to downvalley hives, hardly any bees ride these begrimed, belching behemoths. I would wager that the cost of fuel per passenger miles has seen a dramatic decrease in economic efficiency.

Valley workers would be much better served with more downvalley/Hogback bus routes and more spaces for the park and rides than wasting money running empty buses in and out of Aspen every 10 to 12 minutes.

Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
