Amongst various topics we discussed the BT system map, shelters and cans, Title VI, the Route Analysis and pending TDP, & the process of recieving, publishing, documenting public feedback on proposed route changes. He also aporoved and signed quotes for 12 Victor Stanley trash receptacles
& 5 bike racks I am going to summarize Title VI docs/policies and the route change/feedback process for him.

New 2015 BT system maps

A. Drain developed 2 versions so far of 2015 BT system maps based on 10/21/15 data. The simple map shows stops and routes. The super map also includes stop numbers and both BT and private bus shelters, & closed stops. Other versions can be created to show shelter #, evening/weekend/break service, and Christiansburg service. An FY17 map of proposed changes is in the works next.

New bus shelter to be inspected today

After several years of requests, resources have been aligned to have a new solar bus shelter installed at Prices Fork/Old Glade Rd near Hardees. This will greatly help customers going westbound after shopping, classes, or work.
