    From all the great points our esteemed members have made/will make - 
maybe a digest of these posts should be forwarded to the powers that be. We 
take it for granted that they will cover these points, but I wouldn't put 
faith in it. The common folk that will be addressing these issues first hand 
make a lot more sense.

You reminded me of something else with this Dennis.  In the winter they run 
every hour - but parking probably isn't a problem in town in the winter 
months.  However, in the summer or at least on Remembrance weekend they were 
running every half hour IIRC.  You start dumping people miles out of town 
with a pick up every half hour and you are going to have crowds of people 
waiting going and coming.  What happens if people are still waiting to get 
picked up when the hours end?

I think there is a lot of planning that needs to be done before 
implementation.  You leave too many people stranded for too long a time and 
there won't be too many of those estimated 4 million people ever returning.
