1)"The busway project will provide better and quicker service for 16,000 passengers..."

-This is certainly debatable. Who will use this? Most commuter traffic to Hartford is not from New Britain!

2)...and generate 4,000 jobs over the next three years while reducing congestion.

-Yeah and then what after that? We need to attract businesses (like manufacturing) that provide long-term jobs, not temporary construction jobs.
