This seems like it was either copied from the MarqTran website or written as a way to tell people how to ride MarqTran, not an encyclopedia entry. I've got no vote since I don't know-I'm just nominating the page so wikipedia vets can take a look. -Cookiemobsta 03:54, 25 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • Lost/widowed VfD. Keep, assuming no copyrightvios. Some of the text looks OK. Cool Hand Luke 07:01, 1 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. The entry needs cleanup; fares are subject to rapid change so the best way to deal with them is to refer the user to the website. Some of the other information isn't really encyclopedic, presented as a How To as the proposer noted. This is a minor fault, and doesn't affect the usefulness and appropriateness of the entry. --[[User:Tony Sidaway|Tony Sidaway|Talk]] 12:33, 1 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete: Sure seems granular to be providing a full service bus and train schedule for Marquette, Michigan. It also seems to me to be no more than duplicating another website. I cannot imagine a stranded or puzzled traveler reaching for an encyclopedia to know where to catch the 5:15. I.e. not encyclopedic content. Geogre 18:04, 1 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep and cleanup. Close to the border perhaps, but lots of good human knowledge here. Even the fare structure is more stable than much of what we currently include in some politically sensitive articles. Andrewa 18:24, 1 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. There is plenty of quality content of note here. Cleanup where applicable. [[User:GRider|GRider\talk]] 21:41, 2 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. This page is advertising and contains information that is predominately unencyclopedic. This is a subject that could possibly have a proper encyclopedia article written about it, and I would consider changing my vote if this article were essentially reassembled from scratch in a manner that makes it encyclopedic.

  • Delete or merge with Marquette, Michigan. Wikipedia is not a bus schedule. Gamaliel 04:39, 4 Dec 2004 (UTC)
