    As far as fares I was curious whether the workers at the airport are given subsidized fares. Like are they eligible for an Ecopass etc.

      I’ve seen airport employees with passes every time I’ve taken the Skyride bus, so that seems likely.

    • Arthur Hicks

      Some employees are given Ecopasses. The lower payed employees though usually arent.

    “After Rush Hour, 9News Journalists Race to DIA Via Car, Train in Apparent Attempt to Prove Something”

    Well Top Gear does races like that all the time, and it’s entertaining. A segment like that is a great way to illustrate the different advantages and disadvantages of the myriad transit choices we have. And of course Streetsblog itself is constantly advocating that giving residents multiple choices in how they travel is a major key in reducing congestion. Stop acting dense.

Cain, who was legally using an unmarked crosswalk, has since filed a civil rights lawsuit against the city. Now, reporters are looking into why there are so few marked crosswalks in one of Sacramento's poorest areas.
