Margaret,
In order to address the community concerns, I would like a commitment that any decision will rest with Mountain View. Commitment to submit the final proposal to a City Council vote with ample community input ... or even better Commitment to have a city wide referendum.

Bus lanes are a done deal. It does not matter what existing residents want.

Traffic will grow worse, costs in fuel will rise, growth will happen and yet we.demand more solutions. This doesn't seem like a costly solution, building another 14 mile road would be costly.

I hope all the cities must agree to this design because then the 4 buses an hour won't get there own lane. 4 buses or 350 cars?
