Access Link is a good service provided help the community by picking up and dropping off passengers. Each of these stops take time, especially if a wheel chair is involved. The vans or small busses used have poor fuel efficiency, and they idle during the entire time the passenger is boarding or being dropped off. The air pollution, carbon monoxide, and smell travels over 100 feet during each such stop, inspiring neighbors to stop yard work and leave the area until well after the van/bus leaves the area. Access Link can replace some of their vans and small busses with electric vehicles, and can turn the engines off during stops in residential areas.
