Concerns after election win
Issue date: 11/7/07
Whether Michael B. Coleman is re-elected or Bill Todd is crowned Columbus’ new mayor, there are issues that both should address in order to improve the city. The Lantern would like to offer some suggestions.
Improve public transportation. Anyone who has ever been on a COTA bus can probably testify it is not great. Sure, the streetcar plan is a step in the right direction, but we want to see something tangible happen. Lots of Ohio State grads move to Chicago after graduation and something that city has that Columbus doesn’t is The L – a great public transportation system. Tuesday, The Associated Press published a story about how cabs are cheaper in New York than in Columbus, which doesn’t make sense. We believe that in order to compete for college graduates with larger cities, Columbus needs to offer cheap, efficient transportation.
