A smarter VTA, please


To the Editor:

It is 2015. Are we smarter?

I notice the new Vineyard Transit Authority (VTA) buses looks wider. The old ones just barely fit in places, and have carved widenings in many spots already. Hmm.

The VTA buses that send out billows of catalytic-converter smut should be, without exception, immediately removed from this fragile Island. I know of cities way bigger than Dukes County that have had electric buses for years.The air quality is so challenged, to allow our Island bus company to contribute to this seems really wrong to me.
