Only On Sunday On HRT

For my fellow bus riders, you'll be amused by this one. What little bus service Hampton Roads Transit (HRT) runs on Sunday can make for some stories. I have one from today.

Route 310 is the Downtown Shuttle that serves downtown Norfolk from the Cedar Grove Transfer Center. Occasionally HRT will make a mistake and put a low floor Gillig on that route, a vast underutilization of their best equipment. (Orions are the best fit for the 310.) Today there were two low floor Gilligs on the 310, Buses 2022 and 2023. Given the lack of service on Sunday, they could get away with it.

I just got a new camera for my birthday today (the 5th)

Perhaps I should start an HRT Stupidities group on Flickr. Any ideas anyone?
