Colorado Department of Transportation shows off the Bustang. (Helen H. Richardson, The Denver Post)

Re: “GOP measure to boost road money threatens Bustang, transit projects,” Feb. 3 news story.


a Republican, I am dismayed and disappointed at state Sen. Tim Neville’s short-sighted and unrealistic attempt to purge mass transit funding from state allocations. As Denver continues to grow, and as population density increases, our inadequate mass transit grid must be significantly expanded so that we all don’t end up wasting our lives in bumper-to-bumper traffic, sucking in carbon monoxide, and wallowing in multi-lane highways that simply can’t handle more cars, trucks, buses, cabs, bikes and pedestrians.

Our current mass transit is a place to start, but until we expand into neighborhoods, and make mass transit faster and more accessible, we will be stuck in an ever-increasing logjam of humanity. We need legislators who expand, not diminish, mass transit.
