Slow, infrequent, and inconvenient

Transitway Network: Metropolitan Council approves METRO name, vehicle graphics for LRT/BRT transitway system (February 23, 2012 Metropolitan Council News Release) :

"“The METRO system name identifies the developing LRT/BRT services as unique,” said Arlene McCarthy, director of Metropolitan Transportation Services for the Council. “METRO riders can expect fast, frequent, and convenient service, whether they ride the Blue Line to Target Field, the Red Line to Mall of America, or the Green Line to the State Capitol.”"

Apparently the 90 percent of regional transit riders who use local buses can expect slow, infrequent, and inconvenient service, whether they ride the 3 to downtown or the 8 to Franklin Avenue Station.

The framing like this aims to diminish local buses into second-class service.
