Dave Rogers: Time for transit

December 9, 2012 

Time for transit

I read the Dec. 6 article “Buses, trains might alleviate Beltline construction woes” with a sense of both frustration and horror.

Horror because as a commuter to Raleigh, my life is going to change significantly. Frustration because if we had a comprehensive transit plan for the Triangle, we wouldn’t have to waste all of this money building temporary solutions to deal with the construction.

If the mess we will be forced to deal with doesn’t motivate the Wake County commission to refer the transit question to the ballot, I don’t know what will. It’s time for the Wake County commissioners to get out of the way and let the public decide on whether it wants to pay for more transit.
