STA Route Popular With North Idahoans Proposed To Be Eliminated

I know a lot of people from Kootenai County travel to Liberty Lake to catch the #72 Spokane Transit route to their jobs downtown. Well bad news folks. In STA's latest round of proposed cuts for 2011, the 72 is slated for elimination. Don't get too excited though, because there's still the 74 route that goes to the same place, it just takes a little longer. It looks like the frequency of how often the 74 runs would be increased under the proposal.

What do you think? Is this a bad move or will the more frequent run times make up for the little bit of inconvenience? Here's an article from the Spokesman-Review on the proposed changes, and how you can submit your comments.
