More people would ride if they could get around wherever they are. Downtowns, Longfellow, Northeast, Mac-Groveland, Highland, the list goes on and on. Many neighborhoods are well-served by a linear route (University, Uptown) but there are many more that need loops. In Mac-Groveland, their neighborhood council study showed 75% of the car trips are in the neighborhood, but when you are picking up dry cleaning, milk, books, art supplies and even take-out pizza, you don't always want to walk, and taking the bus is not currently an option! With loops, I don't think they probably need to be full-size buses either. Imagine being able to get around downtown Mpls on your lunch hour!
