Letter: Other important values in riding the city bus

Regarding: “Still a hot ticket: Economic necessity keeps MATBUS ridership strong in F-M,” (Forum, Dec. 20).

Your story about MATBUS ridership completely disregards people who ride the bus out of environmental concern. There are places where people take pride in riding the bus to reduce their environmental impact. When taking the bus in Fargo, I have not encountered the spirit of making an environmental statement.

The article cements the false notion that people ride the bus because they cannot afford to drive a car. How disappointing.
