    Probably launched to preemptively fight Megabus, which is coming back soon. I would wager theyd also serve the LA-LV market.

    The Measure J ad aired – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3R3VJbdMus – and also on radio was horrible. It basically recited the laundry list of stuff that Measure R would bring, by claiming to fix bridges, potholes, and keep fares low for seniors – which it would do, from 2039 to 2069. It didn’t say what it would do, which is bring the Westside Subway and the Sepulveda Pass project over a decade sooner to completion. (To the people who want the next transportation tax measure to be all transit – note all the NON-TRANSIT things mentioned in this ad.)
