Pilgrims

Taking a journey for enlightenment can lead one to a very relaxing time or make one gratiful for what they know and have.

Thursday April 9th is #StandUp4Transportation an effort to highlight the federal funds needed to help sustain local and area transportation.

Everyone is well aware here in California we have been trying the following


  • Build a High Speed Rail between San Francisco and Los Angeles
  • Bring Bay Area Rapid Transit (aka BART) to San Jose
  • San Francisco Transbay Terminal to be built.
Considering it took two decades and millions of dollars to actually rebuild the SF-Oakland Bay Bridge I am not sure transit is the issue. 

Now it could be a complicated system that is embedded in archaic and outmoded methodology. 

It could be that when you have a big Pie stuffed with money everyone wants a piece. 

Or it could be that transportation is not on everyones mind. 

Yet, we fly thousands of miles a day, we drive over 30 minutes to our work and we use the +EAT24 app to have our meals delivered to us. 

So why are we not all so excited about a bus system or the Hyperloop? 

Go to a Greyhound Station, take a bus and see for yourself who is being served by the community of drivers and dispatchers and mechanics that work in those large lumbering vehicles you see throughout your town.
