TDCHR December, 2010

On Thursday, the RAC and TDCHR meetings fell in the same afternoon due to holiday schedules. I was at the Oceanfront for RAC, while John Uhrin wasn't there. (I presume he was in Hampton for TDCHR.) I do a short write-up based on an electronic copy of the meeting packet I received.

In October, 2010, both ridership and on-time performance was up on Hampton Roads Transit (HRT) buses from October, 2009. However, raw customer complaints were up sharply from a year prior. (I use the term "raw" as the validity of the complaint can't be determined until investigated.)

HRT is $782k under Budget for the first four months of FY 2011.

The TDCHR will next meet January 27 in Norfolk at 1:30 P.M.

Take that "HRT is in a budget hole" flat-earthers!

We're having a real bad money crunch situation out here with all area agencies. Community Transit of Snohomish County, for example, recently suspended ALL Sunday service. Pierce Transit is going to ask voters for a tax increase in February 2011 (unusual date, yes, many wanted the vote to be during the general election in November)
