    I can’t tell you how excited I am by this. We live by 38th and Meridian and my wife and I both work near the Circle. Our good friends live in Fletcher Place and Garfield Park. This is going to be life changing!

    To put it in perspective, taking the 39 or 19 downtown takes about 30 minutes on average (longer in rush hour). I have to imagine dedicated lanes, less stops, and prepaid boarding will cut that to 20 minutes (heck, maybe 15). That is significant, especially if it cuts the rush hour time by half. Also, we would have to switch lines (currently no transfers) to get to Fletcher Place or Garfield Park.
