First up Brad Miller, CEO of PSTA:
Another benefit of #GreenlightPinellas - investing in #transit - only 13% of Pinellas bus stops have shelters - lowest of top cities in FLASo PSTA needs $100M per year tax hike for some more shade at the bus stops?

Not to be outdone, TBARTA tweeted about some new bike path scheme in London:
London could soon have elevated bike paths http://t.co/04vN0GTimAWell, if you follow the link, there is some plan (dream?) in London to build 220km of elevated bike paths in London.

[T]he design team has focused on a 6.5km trial route from Stratford to Liverpool Street Station, following the path of the overground line, a stretch they estimate would cost around £220 million.If you do the math, the entire 220km (about 135 miles) of bike paths would cost around £8 billion, or $12.2 billion.
Yeah, that'll happen.
Both Brad Miller and TBARTA seems to be missing some basic math skills.
I'll call it a draw for today, but we'll be looking for the tiebreaker!
