What's going on, Albuquerque?

Yeah,as attractive as it sounds to let people go out and beat other people to a pulp because they suspect them of committing a crime, I am thinking it's not the best overall plan for maintaining whatever slim grip we might currently have on a civilized society.
As a cyclist who uses UNM as a route to work and who already finds it by far the most dangerous part of Albq. to ride through, I am not sure I am in love with a rapid bus route through those narrow roads.
That tidiest town in America ranking is totally bananas...how'd they come up with that one?
I am actually encouraged about the proposed bus route through UNM. Given the convoluted path it's supposed to take, I wonder if it's actually proposed as another Rapid Ride route rather than BRT? Either way, I'd like to see how they propose to route it through campus. Seems like it would make more sense to just run it along University for the length of UNM.
Finally, Ike Benton is saying the narrow, open-to-cars road he's proposing through the 4th Street mall would be amenable to cyclists? Come on now...
The KUNM Call-in Show about Mayor Berry's plan for the Bosque is on Thursday morning, 8-9 am, not Friday.
Thanks for the correction!
At the last Transit Board Meeting, I had proposed that ABQ Transit re-route the Red Line east of downtown - my proposed route was: east on Central, south on Broadway to Gibson (there's a lot of students living there), north on University to Lomas (picking up sports center, CNM, UNM & UNMH), east on Lomas to Louisiana, then to the Uptown park and ride. This covers 90%+ of the ridership at a fraction of the cost. I don't think dropping students/faculty near a truck stop at Menual/University is exactly the safest place in ABQ - Uptown, which already has lots of well-lit parking, would be far superior, plus it ties in with numerous bus lines already. Anybody staying at a hotel on Yale just has business on base somewhere, so I just don't see much ridership there (plus we already have a route that does this).
We don't need three bus lines on Central (Red, Green & 66) - the Red Line can be moved to this new route for a small fraction of the cost (which works at a time of budget crunching). I think they are just in love with the idea of a BRT.
Phil_0: I think Ike Benton be dreamin', mon.
