Better Transit – Flex Vans

Posted in Politics

IMPROVING TRANSIT THE FLEX VAN SOLUTION OVERVIEW Community Transit could dramatically increase ridership and revenue and greatly improve the quality of service for those who do not own cars. I am talking about the flex van concept employing CT union drivers: Using UberX technology vans of various sizes would give rides from home to Transit Centers and from Transit Centers home at the end of the day.

Studies by Coplan, Masters, Maas, and Sawan show that there is much more lead in tap water fluoridated with fluorosilicic acid than with sodium fluoride. Why? SILICIC ACID. When diluted, fluorosilicic acid breaks down primarily into fluoride ion, hydrogen...

What does Mount Vernon have that Snohomish County (my county) and most other counties do not? Internet speeds of 1 gigabite up and down for only $70 per month. Mount Vernon has set up a city utility company which delivers fiber optic speeds to businesses and homes. One Gig fiber optic connection is an enormous stimulus to high-tech business. Companies all over the country are relocating to those few cities which make fiber optic speeds available. One of those cities is Mount Vernon Washington. Another is Chattanooga. Current private monopoly internet providers will no doubt put up stiff opposition, as they have done in other areas. Kansas isn’t the only place where cable companies have thrown up barriers to publicly funded fiber optic networks.
