    Yes - pedestrians have no business walking in Des Moines - in the spirit of the RAGBRAI thread - ban walking

    Maybe they should just attach sticky nerf bumpers to the buses, and peel the people off at the next stop.

    Re: Another bus/pedestrian accident downtown

    As many accidents that have happened I don't care if people want to blame the pedestrians still but its obvious the DART drivers need to slow down and be more alert because 7 in 2 years now is just rediculous.

    Re: Another bus/pedestrian accident downtown

    High speed rail line in place of metro buses? Do they just haul *** for thirty seconds until the next stop?

    Re: Another bus/pedestrian accident downtown

    How come CyRide doesn't have these problems with all the pedestrian traffic they have to deal with? I'm thinking maybe DART folks need to look into how CyRide does things and see where they could improve.

    We need a mono rail because mono means one and rail means rail.

    Ever tried to drive through central campus during passing times in the middle of a weekday? It's a zoo.

    Thanks for clarifying for our Iowa City visitors. I am sure they were wondering what rails had to do with the disease they got from their girlfriends.
