LACK OF MASS TRANSIT POSES PROBLEMS FOR MLB ALL-STAR WEEK
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).
