What if you have no eyeballs? Does breakfast come up instead? Sorry, couldn't resist. Would love to find out sometime.
50% of the time they were performing maintenance? Hmm, hope that number doesn't keep going up. I wanted to be there, too.
That's the whole point of something like the planning commission. You have developers on there; you have people who are more cautious; you have public comment from interested parties. Hopefully, the end product takes everyone's concerns into account. It ain't perfect, but it's as close as we humans can get.
I think Planning Commission is planning to tackle CDC revisions soon. If someone points this out to them, I'm sure they'll keep this situation in mind when they propose their changes.
To my knowledge, the city only has one lift-equipped van, which is used for paratransit.
The website has driven me nuts -- but... Sometimes, usually later in the day, it'll tell me x bus is 12 minutes behind or so about 30 minutes before its scheduled arrival, , only for the time to rapidly dwindle within about 5-10 minutes of its actual arrival. Conversely, sometimes it'll tell me it's more or less on time, only for the predicted arrival count to continuously tick upward. And sometimes, it works like a charm and is particularly useful when I know I don't need to run out the door. Which happens more often? Right now, it's about equal. All in all, I'd say I appreciate the info. It does make for a weird situation though, when I'm looking at the times on my phone, but I don't want to tell my fellow would-be passengers what I find because I can't be sure it's even semi-reliable.
It's really weird to have a big music fest in town and not be invited to partake. You would think there would be a little more local outreach. I think this serves to create a little resentment at times.
I know a lot of people miss Ski Jam. I wasn't around for that, but I've heard plenty of stories.
No doubt these folks deserve closer to $20/hr than $15.
The bus service is funded by a 1 percent sales tax from both Crested Butte and Mount Crested Butte.
It also receives funding from a 1 percent tax on lift tickets sold in Mount Crested Butte.
Not sure who you guys have been interviewing, but from the people I've talked to -- locals and tourists alike -- reaction has been almost exclusively negative, especially lately with buses falling 45 minutes behind in some cases and the app/website unreliable. Very messy at this point. I'm afraid the bus service here is going to stick out in tourists' minds for all the wrong reasons. That's not to say it can't get better, but right now it doesn't look so good, and this is crunch time.
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.
