This is in response to article of Oct. 11 regarding proposed Express Bus service along the Ventura (134) Freeway ("Bus line between valleys is looked at," Tuesday).
Years ago, when studying transit at City of London College our lecturers hammered into us the reality that "resources are scarce, and are capable of alternative uses." Nowhere is this more true than here in Los Angeles, where we are trying to create a transit system that will be attractive to riders. After years of investing most of our transportation dollars in accommodating and encouraging the automobile, there is an almost endless list of transit projects within the region where our limited dollars could be spent.
So I am dismayed to see this proposed express bus service linking Pasadena, Glendale and Burbank along the Ventura (134) Freeway.
