Safety issue my ass

Apparently, city buses are causing a "safety issue" for a few high end
shopping centers in Raleigh. Heaven forbid the soccer moms have to
encounter low income people when they are doing lunch with their
friends. I live about 10 minutes from one of these shopping centers,
and the bus stop that workers have to use is across a very busy highway
from the shopping center. What choice do these people have but to walk across the street to their jobs?  That seems like a bigger safety issue to me.

In all, three shopping centers have refused access to their property for city buses.  These thinly veiled attempts to get away with classism and racism make me sick.

More here and here.

  1. *Boggles* A shopping mall without well designed public transport access isn't a viable business in most European countries. Did the mall's tenants ask the mall management to do this or did the mall management go out on a limb?
