It’s only a matter of time before Connect Transit makes at all the way to a $1,000,000 loss in one month. They are trying really hard to get there.
May income was:
Total Operating Loss:
This isn’t monopoly money! This is YOUR money.
This is Democratic Socialism
Progressives play public transportation as helping people and being compassionate. It is neither. Riders of Connect Transit are enslaved to travel only where Connect Transit can take them. They can’t apply for jobs not on a route. They can’t shop at stores not on a route. They can’t get medical treatment that isn’t on a route. Connect is also stealing their time – it takes much longer to get anywhere on a bus! Worse, riders brains are enslaved to believe they can’t escape Connect for better alternatives..
Progressives use this modern day slavery to keep poor people poor and they use your money to do it! Progressives are in BOTH parties, the GOP continues to fund this abomination across the country.
Connect Transit finally funded tearing down the buildings on Oakland that were contributing to making downtown look like a slum. If the City of Bloomington hasn’t already bought that property, they will soon. The excuse will be they either have plans for it or they have to make sure somebody with the “Right Fit” gets it.

See PDF page 20. Connect has 9 preventable accidents in May. I wonder what happened to other vehicles hit by massive close-to-empty buses?
If you don’t demand your representatives stop this insanity it will one day stop on its own. Socialism always fails. Calling it Democratic Socialism doesn’t change historical facts.
