LOCAL Commentary :: Government & Elections : Poverty & Urban Development : Transportation

Measure J is a blessing for bus riders. Vote yes!

Metro buses are the main form of "alternative transportation" in Santa Cruz County, despite all the rhetoric about bikes, trains and trails. I have a challenge for people who oppose Measure J but claim to support alternative transportation. Ride the bus from Watsonville to Santa Cruz every day for a week. You'll learn why many Metro bus riders are voting Yes on J. Though the No on J campaign materials don't say so, Measure J will add carpool lanes, giving buses priority on Highway 1. (The carpool lanes are not some extra, optional project; they are the priority project in the measure.) Scheduled travel time from Watsonville to Santa Cruz will drop from an hour and 15 minutes to just 30 minutes, and Metro will be able to run more trips with the same number of buses and drivers. With its focus on carpool lanes, Measure J is good for those of us who depend on the bus.
