Cedar Grove was thrown up quickly and without much consideration to bus passengers. However, Norfolk looking to spend $700,000 to move the temporary transfer center onto Salter Street is certifiably insane!
Cedar Grove would suffice as a temporary transfer center for downtown Norfolk if only the lighting was improved and portajohns were installed. Needless to say, that could be done for a lot less than $700,000. If you watch the video, bus riders comment about security; however, there was no security at the previous transfer center on Charlotte Street. I feel safer at night at Cedar Grove than I did on Charlotte Street.
Take a small fraction of that $700,000 to improve Cedar Grove, then get to work on identifying a permanent multimodal terminal site (hint: Harbor Park) for downtown Norfolk.
