Easing Congestion

January 17, 2002

Re ''MTA to Add Electric Scooters, Bicycles to Its Fleet,'' Jan. 12: OK, let me get this straight. The MTA wants to spend taxpayer money to provide folks too lazy to walk a few blocks, or ride a regular human-powered bike, with electric transportation?

If the MTA did more to promote its bikes on buses and Metrorail programs, especially by allowing bicyclists on the rail lines at all hours and without the hassle of a permit, it would be doing something a lot more constructive to ease parking congestion on our streets, not to mention at transit stations and park-and-ride lots.
