    It goes less than 2 blocks from the ballpark.

    Thanks Durham! This is mass transit that makes sense!

    thefensk, that suggestion makes too much sense - that's why they won't do it.

    be better if they looped it past the ballpark on days there is a game.

    I wonder how long this wonderful service will last before it is taken advantage of. Someone will use this service as a catilist to their criminal entrepreneurship. The bull cities crime ridden, gang infested community will pull down any good intent that anyone attempts. Then when these thugs are on trial, they will cry that there wern't enough programs and benifits "handouts" for them to be successful.

    Good to know we have the highest tax rate than the surrounding municipalities, worst crime rate, most under funded police force, and the highest debt but at least we can get a free ride!

    BTW thanks DUKE! You do a lot for this community that seems to never be appreciated.

    Not exactly free - is paid for by the taxpayers.
