Transportation cooperation is needed

To the editor:

Recently I attended a Cape Girardeau County transportation hearing with optimistic hopes. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. A few glaring holes exist.

Several things have to happen for public transportation to be feasible. First, you need a central dispatcher. This point is workable. Problem two, Southeast Missouri State University and Kelley Taxi Co. have to be a willing part of the plan.

Mayor Jay Knudtson is on record as opposing any transportation tax. The proposed routes need work. Result: no bus service.
