RE: If the buses stop running, the vast majority of those who use them have no other way of getting to around.

Psst....

Use a Bicycle! Pass the word! ;-D

Yes, many folks won't have a way to get around, or a clue about alternatives, but at the same time there will ( I believe. ) be many who will get their bikes out, or buy a cheap bike, and put pedal to pavement for the duration.

I've been a Bike Commuter for years, with a current 11 mile 1 way trip, so riding 22 miles a day, 6 days a week, won't phasse me one bit ( I know some folks who ride twice that because they want to, not because they have to. )

There are already many low income people who Bike Commute:

Hispanic workers, legal, and not, are on our roads, and sidewalks, day, and night, if you know where to look.

Ever check out the places where the Day Laborers hang out, such as the NW corner of MacArthur & Harbor?

Lots of bikes chained to poles, on any given day. ;-D

I'm hoping to hear from Bus Riders who take to their bikes, and put out a call for such at my place. ;-D.

Yes, Virginia, the OC has a BikeBlogger. ;-D
