While I understand your point of view, I cannot support it...I believe that on my route, the stops are indeed too close together, and that coupled with the excessive stops often resulting in missing additional traffic signals, significantly slows my ride...

Didnít say they canít remove some stops, but removing half of them is way too much. You canít have some buses stopping every half mile or every mile without providing local service. Even stops every quarter mile are too far for some too walk because they have mobility issues. Are they all supposed to use Access a Ride?

Every four blocks instead of every two (or even every block in some cases), would be reasonable, I believe. I don't think walking two blocks is excessive for anyone, even if confined to a wheelchair. I agree that a half mile or more is excessive...
