Haha, yes. Although I think Dresser sensationalized a little with my quote
Ah, well. Sounded good, and has the added advantage of being true. That's not a criticism of the circulator. I discovered years ago that just about any cyclist in moderately decent shape could beat most morning commuters down Maryland/Cathedral from North to Pratt.
Er, of course, running lights across some lightly traveled cross streets was involved.
(Pretty sure the statute of limitations is up on that.)
Gotta agree with Nate, though, that expanding the service without improving it is a mistake.
And the thing is not free. It's good that it's well used, but the bottom line is that the cost of doing business in the city increased when the parking tax was raised. That shows up on a lot of bottom lines. It's hard to know the full impact until major office leases are renegotiated. Death by a thousand cuts: fees, taxes, and surcharges.
Okay, off the stump. Have a fine day, all.
