    General BRT discussion

    Took a few rides on the 17 Ave transitway for the first time this afternoon. My first impressions weren’t too bad. 9th Avenue to 44th Street station took me 13 minutes. Signalling is clearly an ongoing issue, particularly the ones near the 9th Avenue station and the 26th Street station. Waited an easy 2-3 minutes at those each time which made the bus considerably late. The rest of the transitway seems to function well. Station areas are well designed and I had no confusion or difficulty using the infrastructure. Bus time displays at the stations were erroneous. A Route 1 pulled up as the display indicated 20 minutes until the next Route 1 and 18 minutes until the next MAX Purple.

    General Route Discussion and History

    As of the new route changes, the old bus loop at Whitehorn station is no longer served by any routes as the 57 now bypasses it. Are there any plans to redevelop that space or will it just sit abandoned?

    I'd personally much rather use a website full of advertisements than have to pay annually just to use it.

    Could you elaborate more on this? Does this mean that buses would simply be stored at the Greyhound facility while maintained elsewhere, as the facility doubles as a bus terminal?

    Based on the image, looks like that hole was intentionally cut for whatever reason.
