Operator Professionalism: My Compliments

I was on the 20 heading towards the Beach, and arrived at Pembroke Mall at 8:21 PM, roughly on schedule so I could get that 36 home.

As we were coming around the Corporation Lane loop, someone in the back of the bus broke wind and it wasn’t long until the awful smell made its way to the front of the bus, causing the entire bus to be in uproar!

Throughout the entire incident, the operator stayed calm and professional.  My compliments to the operator.

May 22nd Board Change: Route 36 Update

I have it from HRT staff that when the 36 gets rerouted to serve Buckner Blvd, new stops will be added:

  • Buckner & Croft’s Pride
  • Buckner & Purebred

I also requested a stop at Buckner & Competitor, and will update as I get word.  Competitor Court is where the South Rosemont Public Library is.

I’m BACK!!! (for real)

Route 36 heading towards Pembroke Mall at Tidewater Community College

Route 36 Pembroke at TCC

Yes, it’s been forever and a day since I’ve used this blog.  I was attending a place in the Shenandoah Valley to further my education, and I’m now home.

I will be attending  tomorrow’s special session of HRT’s Transit Riders Advisory Committee and intend to report about it after.

Other business:

  • HRT wants to reduce service on The MAX.  Eh, there’s better ways to do this that can attract ridership.  I’ve submitted my ideas to my two City Council members on HRT’s board.
  • The Tide Light Rail: Dang it!  Start running revenue service!
  • Efficiency Report: Lose my Night 36?  Uh, NO!  Better idea: Let it actually meet the 20 at Pembroke.  You might actually get riders.

City of Virginia Beach is working on a new budget

It’s that time of year again for the City of Virginia Beach to look at and vote on its new budget for the new Fiscal Year.

I must remind the City that currently, it is impossible to do anything at night unless you’re lucky enough to be on Virginia Beach Blvd.  City Council: please remember that when you cast your votes: bus service needs to run later (say, 10:45 PM from TCC – that’s roughly where I live – and it needs to be 7 days a week).

Va Beach Transportation Session Tonight
