RIPTA board chairman Robert Batting resigns. (Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe he’s the one who admitted to never having even ridden the bus, as of the time of his appointment.)
We’re a dense metro area — the nation’s most compact, in fact. We should have one of the nation’s premiere transit systems. Let’s just hope somebody with a decent ethic flies under the Governor’s radar, and into Batting’s seat.
