Bus Ridership Required for CapMetro Employment: A Suggestion

Inherent in the statement below is that CapMetro buses do not meet the needs of a busy schedule, so I suggest a ridership requirement for all employees and board members, with no free passes. Let them experience the fare increases they’re imposing on everyone else.

Capital Metro says they do not track how much its CEO, board or staff use the service, but that they are encouraged to ride. They note that Capital Metro CEO Linda Watson uses the service “as her busy schedule allows.”
