Just a year ago William P. Killeen assisted by Leon
Arnold, Fred A. Spicer and Charles A. Leavell inau
gurated the transportation service of the Washington
mpid Transit- Company.
During the first month of operation the modern
motor busses carried 105,895 passengers, during the
second month 119,984 passengers, during the third
msonth 140,201 passengers and during the twelfth month
71,792 passengers. During the first year of operation
the busses have-carried 1,996,769 passengers.
The Washington Rapid Transit Company has won
-the favor of the public by furnishing efficient service
and will unquestionably hold that favor in spite of the
statements of street car operators that the bus isn't
ageded in Washington and that the bus service is unfair
In carrying 1,996,769 passengers the busses have no
doubt taken some revenue from the street cars-superior
service in any case takes a certain amount of revenue
from an inferior service, an amount that increases with
leaps and bounds as the public learns more of the
difference between the two.
The proof of pudding is in the partaking thereof and
the Washington public has tasted of bus transportation
with unqualified satisfaction and asks for more. Citi
zens as individuals and collectively have forcibly voiced
their approval of the Washingtor Rapid Transit Com
pany's service-the customer of today is intelligent and
quick to recognize superior merchandise and gladly
recommends the dealer with the better product.
The purchasier of transportation is entitled to a
market where he can secure the best-if the street car
companies cannot satisfy his' wants then he is at liberty
to deal elsewhere and the elsewhere has a right to exist
and does exist. If street ears are inconvenient or
cannot handle the riding publie the part of the public
that is left standing on the corner has a right to buy
transportation of another kind.
The desire of the street car interests seems to be to
restrict the operation of the busses so that Washing
tonians will have to use the street cars or nothing-so
that the public will be compelled to swallow service
proven time and time again inadequate and antique.
Manifestly antique because the breakdown of one
street car miles way from the car barn ties up every
car behind it and truly inadequate in that the street
cars are not operated so as to carry the public in severe
weather when the public needs to ride or to handle
masses when the masses are ready to ride, even though
the operators have had years and years to learn the
public's needs and build service that will serve those
Street car interests might better ask for more bus
service to take the load from a weak back.
They should welcome this competition they call

Shut off the gasoline at the tank
