Don't forget we've got two more cracks at the first round of public meetings for the crucial Richmond Transit Network Plan (RTNP): 6-8 pmTuesday, May 3 (DMV, 2300 W Broad St) and 12-2 pm Wednesday, May 4 (Richmond Main Public Library, 101 E Franklin St). If you can't make one of these meetings though, be sure to take 5-10 min to take the Online Survey: Richmond Transit Network Plan if you haven't yet. Share your perspective around wait times v. walking distance, ridership v. coverage, all day v. peak service. Your input is critical to deciding what kind of transitnetwork we need and want for RVA. good times.
A few excellent reads for us: 1) "Jarrett Walker equates transit with freedom, individual liberty," in which Walker presses point that qualitytransit is about people being able to answer the question positively, "How much of the city's richness is available to me?" (RVA Richness for all here we come!); and 2) an oldie but a goodie, "All Aboard?" in which Rev. Ben Campbell powerfully details the call for metro-wide system.
