Ok, you are either happy with the way it is going to be or your not? When
you are talking about altering the way it is going to be then this is not in
favor of the change. What you are saying you are in favor of change with
amendments to the change there forth changing the system the way it is
implement to be.

Just so I'm clear: I'm in favor of the change, I just want them to make the
transfer points safer (chirpers don't do it), and go into the malls or other
complexes where folks would otherwise have to walk unsafely to the stop.

The bus system is ok with me also. I am not saying it can't be improved. In
order to make things better there must be change. It would seem to me people
do not like change.

It takes me about an hour to get from my apartment to the Lighthouse on
Cedar Center cort. I have not yet seen any time table for the NOVA 2010 plan
so I would have a compairson..
