Anonymous Coward wanted a discussion of the Route 36 evening service once the schedule went public. It and other new schedules are now on Hampton Roads Transit's (HRT) website. http://www.gohrt.com/july-service-changes
In other local mass transit news:
1. Tonight is the public meeting at the Town Center Westin on the Virginia Beach Transit Extension Study (VBTES). It's from 6-8 P.M., with the Presentation at 6:15.
2. Tomorrow is the deadline for Wally Erb's VBTA front group to turn in their ballot petitions to the Voter Registrar to try to force a light rail referendum on the November ballot.
First, I've already promised another mass transit advocate that I'll rip them on this blog when the petition drive falls short. (That's why I put the Ben Jealous quote below the banner: a poke at the Flat Earthers will go on the banner.) Second, if anyone wants to join me, I plan to be at Knucklehead's Roadhouse early Friday evening to celebrate the defeat of the reactionary coup attempt.
Anyone want to start a pool on how many signatures they fall short?
