Needed suggestions
Editor:
As a 65 year old who intends to age in place, I sincerely appreciated the much-needed suggestions offered in All Ages City. City staff and the City Council often applaud projects that will make Santa Monica a place for bikers and walkers. We all want a sustainable, healthy city, but at the same time, the Big Blue Bus has eliminated routes from Wilmont (the densest area in the city) and installed bus seats for Lilliputians. Unless we are realistic about our age demographics, a large percentage of our residents will become isolated. Santa Monica is dedicated to sustainability. But sustainability must include responsibility to the humans who live in our environment – humans who are unable to hop on a bike.

Route changes
Editor:
The Big Blue Bus is contemplating many route changes that would accompany the launching of the completed extension of the Exposition Line. Some routes would, according the BBB’s scenarios, be completely eliminated. These plans are being formulated and are on the BBB website (bigbluebus.com), where one can take a survey and state preferences and comments about the proposed changes. Every bus rider who depends on these buses should check this website. For instance, a proposed change would eliminate what is now called the 3M line, which goes from downtown Santa Monica to Montana Avenue and on to UCLA. Many UCLA employees and students depend on this line. If you do, or if you depend on another line to the extent that a major change could change your commuting life, you should go to the website and make your opinions known.
