Let’s Turn This Bus Around! Riders present #NotMyBRT Petition with a 500+ signatures to reverse the October 1 Service Changes and give us more transit, not less.
At the Friday, October 27th PRT Board Meeting, transit riders were back for the second time to demand that the October 1st service changes and the downward of trend of PRT’s service coverage and reliability MUST BE REVERSED! This time, riders held a press conference and presented the Board with a 500+ signature petition on a big, 8-foot wide, painted purple plywood cut-out of a bus! Riders then went inside to the Board and delivered an hour of public testimony detailing how cuts on the 61, 71, and nearly 40 other routes have been devastating for their access to healthcare, childcare, food and jobs.

PRT’s new Bus Line Redesign project holds incredible potential and potential pitfalls. Riders need to get involved to demand a system that’s the right size for all of our needs.
Its finally happening. PRT has been speaking for months about doing a redesign of the entire bus network after it was identified as a top priority in their NexTransit plan. Just last week they issued a press release to say that the redesign process is moving forward, full steam ahead.
