On March 31st, I attended a public hearing about the Department of Transportation's plans to create a select bus service (SBS) along the very busy 34th street. There were many concerns from residents who lived in the area, as well as, suggestions to improving the current bus route and time schedule. In a July newsletter, the DOT outlined their work of SBS using the suggestions and comments from the public. They will have another public hearing in the Fall to discuss the next steps of this project.
