Dowtown Circulator Bus

Summary:

Downtown is in serious need of a connecting form of transportation. Light rail is a start, but does not cover all areas. Buses are also good, but still come up short. Parking is a headache and people need to get around the downtown area quickly and safely.

My idea is a downtown "circulator bus". This bus/shuttle van (maybe several)would cover the downtown area and would run every 10 minutes. Some of the shuttles could be contracted out thru several businesses along the downtown area. Also, several jobs would be available perhaps veterans would be given preference. It would also help the tourism business as well. The stops could be marked with a light people could press to be picked up. No light no stop.
