ODE to BRT - Our Savior

JTA - "The Dream", FILE PHOTO

Ode to BRT, the story of what will happen if the largest City in the South gets to murder it's railroad plan for a system of BRT buses. Why the previous story posted without it's title is any ones guess but read on down, and you'll find the poem of the BRT system - our be all - in all - save all - bus network.

We are NOT against BRT - just don't try and build a bus into a train and don't expect a train to be a bus. It just won't happen - won't work.

So please enjoy this light-hearted look ahead into some future nightmare in Jacksonville.

The arguments rage to this date, "Should have never been built," "waste of taxpayer money," "Doesn't go anywhere," "Nobody rides it..." etc. Bottom line is we have it, and it is finally showing signs of life. Simple extensions to the Stadium, San Marco, and the area of Blue Cross in North Riverside would turn this little train around. Addition of Park and Ride garages and multimodal transit terminals at the end points would bring on the crowds. The video must have been shot on a Sunday Morning, as downtown is certainly as packed with life as any other major City on weekdays. Jacksonville is a city of Bikes, joggers, walkers, buses and cars, one almost wonders how the photographer managed to find this quiet moment.
