@bearzus feedback- This is the way you want it. Crushing us with aging roadways, and high gas prices, trying to force us out of driving. Meanwhile the elites, politicians and the wealthy will always be able to drive as they wish. Build the roads & highways. Quit wasting our infrastructure taxes. Twitter

@LeatherJoseph commented — Never. Are you out of your mind. Let’s see you take all your tools and supplies on a bicycle or a bus. And trains and buses don’t go anywhere near your job site.How’s a Gardener going to take their lawnmower on a Bus Get real? Just take the bus is so Out of touch -Twitter

@blueskies6123 feedback- These are suggestions from ppl who live in academia, large cities like NYC,the elite who have drivers, flexible schedules and nannies. If not they wld know just how stupid these designs are. Ya still have to get to train stations, subway systems & ubers. Cost? They have no idea- Twitter
