11/1: More than just a ‘bus driver’

Moderated by Tom Sabulis

Buses take a back seat to trains in many of our transportation discussions these days.

Yet they play a crucial role in the lives of many metro Atlantans, who are too economically challenged to own cars or live too far from MARTA rail stations.

Today, two bus drivers — Rodney Poole and Greg Colbert — talk about service, their routes and passengers.

Mr. Poole said nothing to what you are saying about women and having police on every ride.

That’s what we need, a private taxi service. We don’t need one bus that can carry 60-70 people. We need 20 or 30 extra cars on the road so that we can move these people. Just dumb!

And explain how liberal policies destroy families and leave kids without their “farther? [sic]“

Mr. Poole describes why no women would want to ride the bus or train. Its an unsafe and horrible experience and would require a police agent on every ride to keep the order.
This is why no money should be spent on buses or trains.
Give those in need vouchers for private taxi’s.
Our society has slide to the dark side and shows no improvement due to liberal policies that destroy families and leave kids without a farther.
