Public #transit terrible in motor city -- hmmm.

Jeff Gerritt: Waiting, waiting, waiting ... for a better bus system | Detroit Free Press | freep.com: "Riders at crowded Detroit bus stops boil with frustration and anger -- much of it aimed at Mayor Dave Bing. Sometimes waiting for hours, they miss work, classes, job interviews, medical appointments.

In the last four months, city bus service has crumbled into a crisis, stranding many of the nearly 30% of Detroit households that don't have vehicles. If this debacle had happened to anyone but Detroit's poor, politicians and pundits would scream for action."
