The Wheels on the Bus…

I am thankful for the local bus service. New buses -they’re replacing the older fleet. They all run on compressed Natural Gas (CNG). Not the most comprehensive service areas, but given the (funding) challenges and the fact that most folks around here have cars, they do a pretty good job.

Some of the lines are very punctual; others, not so much. And of course, the less punctual routes are the ones with the most folks riding. But that’s OK. Anyone using the services on a routing basis knows and understands. Probably don’t like it, but there you have it.

They also have a pretty decent website with routes & schedules published as well as smart phone apps with the same info plus a live bus tracker–you can get an idea of where your next ride is along the route.

Pretty cool. Now if only all government agencies were up to these (lame) standards. <sigh>
