Something to smile about

This has been a pretty dismal couple of weeks for area public transportation advocates, as it has become obvious that the State has no intention of providing any funding for their capital city's public transportation system, OR giving citizens the opportunity to vote on taxing themselves.

"By golly, we don't need a bus system in [insert one: Declo, Cambridge, Dubois, Bonner's Ferry, Kamiah], so you shouldn't need one either!!!"

Maybe there will be more outcry in a year, when gas is $4.25 instead of $3.25, we've had another 100-or-so yellow-alert air quality days, and the roads - which they also failed to fund - are more busted up than they are now.

I got these cool photos via email. Obviously taken in places where public transportation is more ingrained as a part of the culture. I like 'em! I hope you do, too.

By the way, we have had a fun bus around here ... see my profile icon.

I'm not sure whether it's still on the road or not, but it brought a big smile to my face every time I saw it (and even more the few times I had a chance to ride it).

Wish the local buses were as exciting as those in your pics... Over here in Zaragoza... only boring ad boards...
