The Role of Mobility Priorities

Newport Beach shows their 2014-2015 annual budget is $165 million with an increased property tax of 5%, increased sales tax 4.8%, and increased bed tax 6.1% that year. Their Public Works expenditure was $33 million. Meanwhile this senior was photographed last week sitting on the sidewalk while waiting for the Route1 bus, turns out the bus was stuck in Laguna traffic and late. The bus route provides a sign marker but no transit shelter not even a waiting bench to sit down.  Newport Beach is home to fine automobile dealerships like Ferrari, Maserati AND Lamborghini so maybe NB Public Works could reevaluate their priorities?
