Letter: Year-round transportation system benefits Grand County

To the Editor:

For any one who did not attend the town meeting on the creation of a transportation district, here are the facts.

The proposed transportation system will be paid for by use taxes and transfer taxes mostly paid by our guests and second-home owners. With the transportation system controlled by the towns we can apply for state and federal funds as well to fund the transportation system. Now we can have a year-round transportation system.

A year-round transportation system will reduce congestion on our roads and make our air less polluted. We will be safer with more buses and fewer cars on the road. Fewer hitchhikers will also make our roads safer. Kids below the driving age and those who can’t afford cars will be able to easily travel year round.

I wholeheartedly support a year round transportation, and believe it will be a tremendous asset to not only Intrawest but every citizen. A year-round bus system will make Winter Park and the surrounding communities become a better place for guests to visit and people to live.
