Letter: Is it time for a 4th Street BRT?

To the Editor:
Building a $485 million Gateway Corridor transit way is in the works in order to provide 15-minute all-day bus service from St Paul to Lake Elmo/Woodbury. I applaud the effort to increase transit but $485 MILLION is four times the cost of adding a regular route bus.  Would residents and businesses along 4th Street N. in Oakdale like an explanation from their elected officials about the proposed so-called: bus rapid transit (BRT) along 4th St from 694 to Inwood Ave?
