    I had a dream either last night or the night before that DDOT was renumbering additional routes because they decided to add additional routes to their ConnectTen system (and probably renaming it to reflect the new routes too).

  7. I upload a wide variety of things on my Youtube page (in fact I use a different name there than I do here), but just yesterday I decided to get back into transit ride videos. I so far have two episodes from this season of rides on two of SMART's Gillig BRTs on route 125.

    SMART (Detroit)

    A sigh of relief in Macomb County as SMART's millage there survived yesterday's recount. When it was originally counted on August 7, it passed by less than 25 votes, while it easily passed in Oakland and Wayne Counties. https://www.macombdaily.com/news/smart-bus-tax-vote-survives-recount-in-macomb-county/article_66b4f780-ac53-11e8-82d7-83883ebbf5ca.html https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwD02FTCYU0

Two other 24/7 routes, 16 Dexter and 17 Eight Mile, are not part of Connect Ten. Three other routes will also be renumbered due to them currently using numbers that will be used for the Connect Ten routes: 7 Cadillac/Harper becomes 67 Cadillac/Harper 9 Chalmers becomes 68 Chalmers 10 Chene becomes 52 Chene Free Wi-Fi A new logo has been unveiled, featuring two "D"s next to a period. It will be implemented immediately. A new livery has also been unveiled, featuring white and gold rays against a mint green background emanating from a Spirit of Detroit logo. It is being applied to the new 1800-series Xcelsiors and will be applied on all current and new buses throughout the next year. http://theneighborhoods.org/story/ddot-unveils-new-route-system-new-logo-free-wifi

    Transit Related Dreams

    During a dream that I had two nights ago, I was in Chicago and was riding the CTA Blue Line, which for some reason had... -much smaller railcars -station ceiling hights quite more similar to Washington's Metro -I was boarding from a station on Lake Street near where the line curves northwest to run under Milwaukee Avenue, which would place this station in...of all places...under the Chicago River

    During a dream that I had last night, I was looking at SMART's website tracker and one 160 run was being done with a 2002 Gillig starting with 224 (forgot the last two digits), but the other 160 run was being done with a vehicle numbered 22300...which has never existed.
