    That's a novel idea offering bus service when it is needed. Makes a whole lot more sense then taxing Loudoun County residents for bus and train service that will be under utilized. I see Lahood appointed another person to continue the bureaucracy he started. To solve the MWAA problem you need to lose Potter and the whole corrupt boards. Don't be adding to our misery. Who is going to pay for this woman to assume this accountability role and who will pay for Wolfs permanent Inspector. Why of course we will through higher tolls and the 15 dollar increase our Gov. wants for registration fees. The projection is for auto use to decrease 1.7 by the year 2040 compared to today. Lets concentrate on the roads and quit adding pork spending for mass transit on the backs of vehicle owners.
