Regarding Barbara Smith’s April 6 letter saying that the Spokane Transit Authority is wasting taxpayer money by urging a vote for expanded transit:
What business doesn’t advertise for their enhancements? Does she believe more people are moving here? More folks on the buses equals less congestion on the roads. Most drive solo. Where is her closest bus stop when her car breaks? When, because it is only a piece of machinery and will break someday. Her neighbors need better transit, too, commuting to jobs and school.
Getting out of festivities after 10 p.m.? Your boots better be made for walkin’ because opening a taxicab door will cost you $5 and up. Besides all that, how much soap, makeup, clothes and cars can you buy? Groceries are not taxed, nor are prescriptions.
I will vote yes on buses and urge all voters to do so by April 28.
