If you vote yes it would at least be a step in the right direction, I understand where you are coming from with a business plan, however I would hate to see more jobs lost and more importantly loss of transportation, in which I rely on to attend classes and work.

THe whole point of the tax to pass is to increase and expand services, also to build park and rides. SO if you vote against you just contradicted everything you mentioned as to why your friends dont take the bus.

THis is misleading I watched the news and the township officials said they were interested in a JEDD on undeveloped property, just not the existing businesses.

Thats the whole point to the levy to bring it back to full service. Vote Yes....and by the way I live in boardman and I ride the bus regularlly into downtown, so it dosent benefit city residents.

Robert...great post, And to Atown parent you are assuming I live with in the city.. I happen to live in austintown and know many people from austintown who used the bus to get to ysu, such as myself. And yes youngstown is my city in which I have a strong passion for. When I go out of town people recognize Ytown not austintown which is jus an entity of the city. So you are the uninformed and unintelligent one.
Just as Robert said many people do not have children however still pay taxes for those who do to attend the schools. Just because you dont use the bus dosent mean no one else does.

What some of you people fail to understand is that, city residents arent the only people to use the bus. Ive seen many residents outside the city, who use this transit system, especially with the gas prices. People such as atownparent and others are making there opinion based on race which is wrong. I say this because Im looking at your other postings such as feeding the hungry. Once you guys decide decide to leave your small world known as the suburbs, you will realize that the rest of the country collaberates with the city on mass transit which creates a successful economy.
Atown parent if you only knew how dumb you sound. Its scary to think you are a parent.
