Please use public transit in visiting me.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-11-10/transit-use-must-double-to-meet-1-5-c-goal-mayors-warn

It is IMPERATIVE that pubic transit use be double if we are to avoid a climate change disaster. Since I live within 1-2 blocks of 24/7 transit route 202 please use public transit if not within wlaking or biking distance of where I live. If u are one of the feww in the area that does not live close to pulic transit, please drive only to the nearest transit stop and take transit from there. Global warming has really hurt Las Vegas going from averaging more than 45 days a year having the temperature drop to 32F (OC) or lower in the 1930s to about 8 days a year now. Public transit, unless u mmake a very high income, does NOT take more time than driving as if u drive the added time to earn the costs of operating a car, time to maintain it, AND time that u cannot spend enroute getting things done (Internet can be used while riding the bus with its powerful and free wi fi on board) when you are behind the wheel. There is the yellow RTC app where u can buy passes on your phone and just scan as u board to pay. The buses uses hospital grade cleaning and ventilation as well. You all also safer from the a city with some of the worst drivers in the USA (reason for very high car insurance rates in Las Vegas) whe in a bus. The heating and a/c o the buses is top rate as well. PLEASE do the RIGHT thing for the city and the planet and use transit when visiting me and doing other trips in town when possible. Thanks

Amazing to see how many guys voting against public transportation and voting for climate change. Or perhaps they're just voting against the suggestion that their slight inconvenience might be the responsible thing to do.

I think it's more likely that this has nothing to do with the interests that most people are on this site for, and thus has no business being posted here. Relevance is importance. It's like being at a convention for Marvel and putting up a poster saying you helped deliver the baby of a dying mother. Just not the time or place.

I believe that it is relevant as unless we are in close walking distance of each other that we use transportation to reach each other and depending on the type of transportation that we use it has an effect on our rapidly warming planet which can be so easily avoided by using transit instead of driving in areas where it is available when we want to meet up to practice our martial arts techniques.

The commonly held and gravely mistaken notion of irrelevance is exactly the reason why climate change has become the present threat that it is and why it's just going to get worse. An option was presented to help make a difference. Nothing could be more irrelevant than the entertainment value of that option.

While well-meaning, the post isn't relevant to this site and is problematic.

You either have to drive or fly to visit—the lights from the casino run 24 hours along with the air conditioning. Lawns are watered in the desert, with few biking lanes and even fewer walkers. Vegas is facing a water and energy crisis with low water levels at Lake Mead. Las Vegas also has a terrible mass transportation bus network.

Taking mass transportation should always be encouraged, but you should ask people not to visit you to make a difference.

Las Vegas has a good bus network. There is 24/ service from Center Strip to within a block of where I live. Even at 300am there is 30" service. The Deuce Strip bus runs 24/7 as well connecting to the 202 to me quite easily. Other hotel casinos are also served by our bus system as well. IF u had the time spent to earn the money after taxes to take a taxi or Uber u may find that using the bus saves u time. This week southern Canada had places in the 100s for days . Global warming from cars and coal power plants is wrecking the world...we need to avoid car usage as much as possible.
