This is really going to be a fun event for all that can make it and for a great cause, the Routt County Humane Society. Be sure to check out the event site at http://ssmustacheride.com for more info. If you just want to donate and are unable to join the event you are encouraged to donate on the site!
Having lived in the Yellow Line, I feel the low ridership on the Yellow line is due to it not being on as set a schedule and at convenient times. A line that doesn't start until after I need to go to work and stops after I get off work makes it unrideable. It would be better if the line ran 6am-9am and then stopped and re ran 4pm-10pm. During the rest of the day, getting up the hill or down the hill is much easier, all time of year. Also it has to run on the 20 minute schedule like all of the other lines. 1 bus per hour does no good, from experience. One thing I do know, is that by cutting the yellow line, many of those in our community that do not have vehicles and many of the clients of Horizons will be effected by this, and may be forced to move because they will not have access to transit in the condos/apartments and homes on the yellow line.
It was sad to hear that as the chili ran out this year that at least on a few people asked for refunds, and it was lost that this was a Fundraising event for Mainstreet. Mainstreet puts on events in our community like the Farmers Market (14 Weeks throughout the summer), Light Up the Night Community Tree Lighting (Friday after Thanksgiving), Sisters In Steamboat (October 12-14), Sidewalk sales (through out the year) and all of the other events in Downtown Steamboat Springs all on a very limited budget. Success of events like this helps make future events even more successful. Tracy and all the Volunteers did a great job putting on this event and it was again a great success! I was proud to help take part as a volunteer in this event again this year!
