This showed up on my Twitter screen this morning.
Yes, the weather is beautiful for this time of the year. Temperature about mid-fifties and a dry, high pressure system overhead. Just a beautiful day to get out and enjoy.
But a bus ride? This city’s transit system is geared toward getting the employee to his job, be he an industrial shift worker, a white collar, 9-to-5er or a service worker in the retail trades. One thing this system is not aimed toward is the family oriented excursion to the park or other relaxing pastimes.
Those of us who were at work could find no time to get out for a pleasant ride on the bus and those of us who might wish to have an easy ride to the larger parks or entertainment locale have found that routes and scheduling are inconvenient.
All in all it is just a very confusing suggestion for Lextran to make. Even Keeneland has no racing today.
