A Journalist Reviews Anchorage Transit
"The People Mover counts 12,000 boarders a day, with many of them being repeats. The routes are accessible to about two-thirds of the households in the Anchorage Bowl, plus some in Eagle River, says a transportation planner. Buses take people to hospitals, recreation centers, shopping and work. Some kids ride to or from school... But the bus system would not work for me... It's set up with downtown as the hub for nearly all the routes. So you almost always have to go to the city center to get anywhere else. That's supposed to change over time, with other hubs, like Muldoon and Dimond, getting more service and better-timed transfers."
