Common Sense Meets Transit Policy

A couple local changes from absurd policies:

1. The restrooms at the Newport News Transportation Center (NNTC) have been reopened. Hampton Roads Transit (HRT) had closed them, complaining about behavioral issues of a few. However, in closing them they created at least as many problems as they solved.

At HRT's December public meetings on the ongoing Comprehensive Operations Analysis (COA), the need for restroom facilities at transfer centers was an issue in 4 of 7 meetings. Let people use the toilet!

2. The downtown Norfolk loop bus stop on Boush Street has been moved from in front of Union Mission to Tazewell.

Senior City of Norfolk Staff, transit advocates are watching you very closely.
