  1. Saw him speak a few times and was never impressed. Always seemed to good to talk to the community or even his employees.

  2. Shelters at every stop sounds like a waste of money. Put that into more buses on routes

  3. Lynx has close to 1100 shelters at its 4500 stops. Ridership also is taken into account

  4. LYNX has more bus shelters than most of it’s peers. They put in 400+ new shelters in recent years mostly thanks to stimulus funding. Also, many corridors lack the right of way to install them.

  5. Can’t build bus shelters at every stop without adequate funding. There’s only so much they can do

  6. We need a funding plan in place for Lynx. Too many good transportation leaders have left Orlando for Charlotte over the last 15 years.
