Wouldn't it make sense for MTA to create a “grocery route” for these [grocery-lacking] areas to run two days per week at a round-trip cost of about $3 per rider? Let it run every two hours and have some sort of rack system where the rider can let the groceries ride on the return trip.

That would be good sense to have buses going into neighborhood where there are no grocery stores. It would give the people a better opportunity to eat healthier.

It would be wonderful. One thing the article didn't mention is the higher prices stores charge in food desert areas. A gallon of milk at Kroger currently is $2.67, while the tiny mart it's $4.00. People who are stuck pay more and can't get through the month with food stamps.

Given the reaction to the article by members of the public, the hue and cry will drown any chance of a wonderful idea becoming reality.
