2008 ridership data-a preliminary retrospective analysis
Here’s the data: all_stops_2008
There’s a data CD with the current ridership-by-stop info coming in the mail any day now from the friendly planners at SORTA so we can all look forward to a much more detailed analysis of the new stuff once I get it. I love public planning meetings. They’re always the perfect opportunity to ask questions that in email would likely be ignored(like “Can you please give me all of your data?”).
Rule #1 of urban planning is that if you don’t show up to the public meetings, you will have less franchise than if you do. You’ve all already missed (or didn’t) the public meetings for SORTA’s preliminary transit plan, but it’s not too late to send emails. I’ve been advised that Sallie Hilvers will field comments/suggestions/questions by email and pass them on to the right people.
More commentary on that preliminary plan coming momentarily.
