What I can’t understand is why the (new express bus route) schedule is so drastically different. It’s like whoever decided this did so it would fail. And basically that is the way the “parties in question” want it to have happen. This appears to be a little bone that we are getting thrown covered with rat poison. Why not just come out and say: “We don’t want the residents of Ahwatukee having the privilege of riding to work on a bus?” Quit beating around the bush — you want it to have a low ridership the next six months so you are making it unworkable for a lot of us, which will result in us taking our cars or car pooling. I am tired of “talking” to deaf ears and trying to make a blind person “see.” You are winning this one and that is a shame. Too bad we aren’t working with intelligent adults.
