On this day in 2006, our first post appeared on this site. In the past five years, our popularity and productivity have been directly related to whatever transit initiative is making the news. A fluke ballot initiative win for Clay Chastain has turned into a daily obsession and a chance to reconnect with writing. Today, most of our content arrives via Twitter, as has been the case for a few years.
Also on this day, we’re happy to report the downtown streetcar project has progressed to the point where financing is being openly discussed. Regionally, Mike Sanders’ regional rail plan is still in the planning stages and smaller investments in bus routes and equipment are still occurring. The only dark spot is the question looming over Johnson County… will they even continue offering fixed route transit after federal and state money dries up?
Rest assured, we’ll continue to bring you the scoop!1 comment
