  1. Very good idea. The (empty) shuttle is from the few things that help with congestion in Lakewood.

    The shuttle buses have tinted windows for a reason. They drive around empty most of the day.

    Can someone please explain this to me? The buses are EMPTY! I repeat, the buses are EMPTY! And they knew it would be like that from the start. As wise Louie Follman once said at a Zoning board meeting, "It looks like someone's got his hand in the cookie jar."
    It's disgusting what goes on around here.

  4. Have they done any surveys of how many people utilize it, or did they just sign a check blindly?

  5. The initial money for the shuttle was a 9 million dollar grant. The township already kicked in over 200k and Ad revenue goes to the bus company. They made a special route from belz development to chemed to accommodate the ladies who don't drive and also to bring more patients to chemed. The seniors who could have used the shuttle service the most still never got a route.
    We only worship the almighty dollar.

    1. I highly doubt the seniors would use the shuttle. Where in lakewood are they going. They all have cars and drive around. At least the chassidish ladies use it so those routes they should keep, but why ad money if the rest of the routes are empty.

    2. Maybe the reason is so they can claim that public transportation will decrease congestion this way they can add more density.
