LACK OF MASS TRANSIT POSES PROBLEMS FOR MLB ALL-STAR WEEK
Published April 10, 1995
Organizers of the '95 MLB All-Star Game and its related festivities say that "a lack of mass transit is Arlington's No. 1 challenge," according to the FORT WORTH STAR TELEGRAM. Arlington Mayor Richard Greene called transportation "the biggest issue" for the logistics of All-Star week. The "top priority" for the organizers will be to ensure that the members of the media and MLB officials and guests have "reliable transportation" for the events. For this, the league is paying roughly $100,000 to Gray Line Tours and Limousines of Dallas and Fort Worth to provide continuous service. For the "average fan," however, transportation may be more difficult to get. Greene is currently working with Dallas and Fort Worth officials to consider other options (Christopher Ave, FORT WORTH STAR TELEGRAM, 4/8).
