  1. We get it your offices are on Lincoln and clearly, you were thinking of yourselves driving in here. But what a one sided way to write about this. But the good news is there are about 80 people in each of those buses if that number increases due to efficiency. You could have another 80 people every 15 min not driving. Even if you continue to drive that benefits you. Long term thinking will treat you better in the long term.
