SG-W:/ AATA bus routes (Beware: venting)

Title: Torrella Systems Stationery
I'm getting pretty fed up with having to drive 3-6 miles to catch a bus to work every day. Can't even ride my bike for fear that some jerkimer on a caffeine buzz will try to do bumper boogie on my left pedal. Is there any hint that AATA is considering adding a route south of I-94 on Carpenter and/or Michigan Ave. between Hewitt and Carpenter? Two huge apartment complexes, a trailer park and two huge subdivisions -- and no bus service! What gives?? The demographics are certainly there.
I still can't believe some planners in Pittsfield didn't see a traffic problem a year or two ago.
I'd *really* like to see some serious moves being made to put in bikeways for safe egress/ingress to these subs that are sprouting like weeds out here!

P.S. The drive varies because the Route 22 ("Connecter") bus is the only one that goes to North Campus and the only quasi-legitimate park 'n ride lots on the southeast side are Meijer (don't tell them) or the strip in front of Ace Hardware on Washtenaw. What a traffic jam *that* road is at 8am!!
