  1. It would be a bit heartwarming to see two weird arguments debunked: the idea that empty buses are a problem, and that buses parked at bases are a problem both representing avoidable waste.

    As buses don’t remain full all along their route (deadheads, directional commutes, etc.) and parked buses means that buses are on the road when they’re needed – parked when they’re not, I’m tiring of hearing from the typical Eastsider argument that Metro is wasting billions because they see a bus running empty after it leaves the Park and Ride (after discharging a full load).
