- Highway motor coaches can be eliminated from residential streets in two ways = the Dreams Park can contract with Birnie Buses to run trolleys - which will be better for everyone - including the Dreams Park players. And the Hall of Fame can accommodate tour buses on private property on the east side of the HOF - not take up spaces on Main Street.
- Catherine Ellsworth wrote a LTE mischaracterizing the petition as "banning highway buses entirely" from Cooperstown. What's proposed is prohibiting them from residential streets. And using the remote lots/ trolleys to serve most attractions. The Otesaga Hotel, Fenimore Museum, Farmers Museum and Hall of Fame - can all accommodate highway bus stops on private property - and all of them are on state or county highways. All of these attractions can be accessed without resorting to residential streets. This is a bit like the noon siren. When it was proposed to be eliminated, there was an outcry to keep it. (Where was Ms. Ellsworth on that ?) Once it was eliminated, everyone wondered why it took so long to get rid of it. And no one wants it back. Same with highway buses on residential streets. Once gone, won't be back. http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/reduce-remove-heavy-vehicles-from-
- A vehicle's impact on a street is exponential to its weight. A 20 ton highway bus has the impact of thousands of cars, as explained in this paper: http://caltransit.org/cta/assets/File/FTA%20Study%20on%20Axle%20Weights.pdf
