There is a certain happiness sighted when your bus comes along. It is of course a small specialized form of happiness and will never be a great thing.

Playing games with Sacramento Regional Transit's future

Sacramento Regional Transit is inviting people to play the "Willingness-to-
" game.

Unfortunately, this online game most likely has the same relation with reality as all the other online Sim games. It's just too hard right now to imagine a time when RT can do any of this stuff. They can't even fund today's operation. And next Monday, the board will vote to raise fares just to climb out of the hole that the governor dug for them.

UPDATE: The results of RT's online survey have been posted here. Given the way RT phrased the options, it is surprising that only 61 percent thought Scenario C should be RT's long range vision.
