The daily STEW (Star-Telegram Editorial Writers): On Wednesday, the Fort Worth City Council decided to put $1.26 million in “bicycle infrastructure” improvements into the $292 million bond package to be put before voters in May. Is this a good way to spend public money?
Dumb idea but for the three people who will use it. Ask them to pay for it. David Diercks
A total waste of public money. Just as the Forest Park striping project was. Jeff Gray
Bicycle riders have the legal right to use streets, so you could end up following a bicycle whether the bond package passes or not.
Absolutely. North Texas needs better transportation options and alternatives to driving.
Are you serious? No. Hayley Hope-Lofton
Fort Worth is not San Fran, so stop with the bikes. Bear Rich
Yes. Anytime you can safely ride a bike rather than drive a car, everyone benefits. Don Wheeler
Yes. Cuts down on automobile use and air pollution. Steve Munday
Yes! A great way to improve!

Not a good use of funds given the fact that general fund employees have gone without pay raises. Juanita Rojas
The $292 million bond package is a horrible way to spend money.
Yes. This is for transportation and public safety.
Way more important things public money could be spent on.
No different than jogging trails in city parks, etc.
