Tim Keenan 4 days, 2 hours ago on Steamboat City Council gets an earful about recent cuts to winter bus service

Oh yeah, and these buses every 35 minutes on the cinnamon line are driving me batty. You might think it should be simple enough to figure out, but I'm not having much luck. Lucky for me, the iPhone is coming to save the day.

I think it's gone about as well as could be expected. Council has known this was coming since at least October and gave no direction to add more money to enable the recruitment of more drivers or encouragement to stick with the existing winter schedule.

Not at all surprising this isn't going smooth as silk. Just wait another couple weeks till this town is packed with tourists. It should have been obvious, and I'm sure it was known, that such a radical schedule change would hit some snags. Consolidating stops like Mustang Run may work in the summer, but doing so in the winter seems to be asking for trouble. I can tell by the radio traffic that the drivers and dispatchers are having at least as hard a time with the changes as the passengers. Seems like there's a lot more coordination necessary, and many times it doesn't work out particularly smoothly. Hopefully for everyone involved, there can be some changes made here and there to smooth things out a little, and in a few months transit is going to need to evaluate how well this worked and decide how it wants to proceed for next year. But asking tourists to walk extra distance through condoland in the winter seems like a recipe for disaster. I actually have some friends that live over that way. Guess the next poker night might be a little more exciting than I bargained for.

Well, I'm fresh from the cinnamon line. Actually works out pretty well for me since I typically go downtown from the Ponds and not to the mountain. Ponds to downtown in 10 minutes is great! My roommate who's on ski patrol is not thrilled that the first orange line leaves the Ponds at 7:10. Doesn't seem to make much sense when this is where many if not most of the mountain workers live.

Reese, you've seen Mark before for sure. He usually wales away with his band at the pub: The Sneaky Bastards. Don't think I've seen him acoustic, though.

I for one am glad Scott practiced some diligence and shared his findings with the community. Now if I avail myself of their services, I'm doing so with eyes open. Summary judgments don't happen unless it's a pretty clear-cut case.

Just the way they've reacted to this article says a lot. Although it sounds like the Pilot basically brought them to the attention of the AG's office, so I can understand they'd be a bit peeved.

9:27 p.m. Officers were called to a report of two women not getting along in the 2900 block of Burgess Creek Road. One of the women thought the other one was wearing her shirt. They owned the same shirt.

Lol, is this Clueless or Steamboat ... or clueless Steamboat?
