Due to new federal regulations that prohibit dedicated shuttles to and from
sporting events, MTA announced they have canceled the End Zone Express routes this season.
I'd love to know which turkeys up there in Congress voted for this, somehow thinking it was a great idea. Do they not realize that gas is kind of expensive? And aren't they the ones always encouraging us to make use of public transportation? What happened? Did they just get around to seeing Speed
on cable last week and thought, man the terrorists could take over a bus?
Of course, the other bad side to this is that MTA has apparently known for a while, as have the Titans and the Metro Sports Council. And yet, none of these parties saw fit to try and find a solution to help the fans out.
