A couple of days ago the Clayton County public buses (C-Tran) shut down. The reason, from what I understand, is the lack of a budget to keep it running. More than 5,000 people relied on that public system and, according to interviews done by local media on the last day, a lot of people didn't know what they were going to do. Here's a link to an article that our local newspaper the AJC posted about the situation.
Whether it's true or not is still up for debate and it's relatively unimportant given the very real and current C-Tran situation. I am saddened that an entire county of people has been left to fend for themselves. Personally, I don't know anyone who was relying on the bus, but I wish that I did because I feel like I should be doing something to help.
What is the solution to this problem and how can we make it right?
