They’ve been trying for years to get a bus route to go along the #333 so that people who live along that rather long road could have an alternate way of getting into town other than driving. For the past year the communities along Prospect Road have been involved in a pilot project with Metro Transit to see exactly how much interest there would be in having a bus route out there. As you have already seen, the pilot project is about to wrap up and there will be a meeting in January to discuss whether or not to do this full time.
I hope they get their bus route, I used to live out there and there are plenty of people there who could use one. Maybe not as much as in a major city, but enough that it could possibly be profitable. We’ll have to wait and see how this turns out.
