Most Of You Belong

50% said you belonged to a civic league and are active in it, with 25% members but inactive. 16% don't have a civic league in their neighborhood, while 8% haven't joined.

I was scratching for a new question, and a pretty obvious one struck me looking outside this morning: should Hampton Roads Transit (HRT) have a weather contingency plan (or plans)? Many transit systems do. (In a recent discussion, Jessica Clark gave web addresses for a few.) In the wake of the November, 2009 nor'easter, HRT began to work on improving how it got information to riders for such occurrences. However, a few weeks later the second round of light rail cost overruns went public, and that project got pushed to the back burner. Currently, HRT deals with such weather events on a case by case basis.

So, HRT's website is saying limited service available

On Facebook, apparently service is canceled according to at least three different sources.

Rumor has it service MAY be suspended tomorrow (which I believe looking outside)

There was limited service this morning. HRT put out a Press Release at 11:20 A.M. which announced service would be suspended at 1 P.M.

The home page needs to be updated. So does Passenger Alerts.

Buses should never been on the road in the first place.

To the people voting "Who Cares?"

Care to explain why? And "I don't ride the bus" isn't a valid answer. So is being a vbta or tlp lemming
