Because the links we already have between NBR and LSU went so well, like the football players nearby getting robbed and the basketball player, Wayde Sims, getting killed near Southern.

Shouldn’t that be NBR to Angola, with a stopover in downtown BR?

So instead of making the crime around LSU better, they are actively trying to make it worse?

re: Plank-Nicholson Bus Rapid Transit Project
The original rail idea would have been a waste of money but would have had a benefit, tying what was then a rising downtown area containing significant hotel capacity with the areas largest visitor destination (Tiger Stadium).

Now we’re going to tie a sinking downtown area to the Ghetto and LSU using the same roads that are already clogged. This is going to be a mild improvement in convenience for 8 people, but otherwise accomplish nothing,

The accomplishment is getting someone’s beak wet for CATS.

Those frickers hold LSU hostage every year over his service because they know it is about 7 dates per year where they will actually have a full bus.

I've just never understood this argument. Money isn't racist. If there was money to be made off of a grocery store in North Baton Rouge someone would do it.

Nothing is impeding them from shopping at Whole Foods now. Why the bus route?
