Now that my work schedule will permit it, here are a few items that I am just now getting around to post and comment on recent news items such as this one:
Montgomery Newspapers report that officials in Central Bucks are concerned over the possible closings of the New Britain and Link Belt stations along the R5 Lansdale-Doylestown line as a result of a study published last year by the DVRPC. The study also recommended that Fortuna station also be closed, but that Delaware Valley College station remain open despite low ridership counts. At last year's operating budget hearings in Doylestown, DVC officials had offered to fund the $10,000 needed to cover expenses in lieu of closing the station in the most recent round of cuts. The article also reports that the Bucks County TMA would look into a job access shuttle along the US 202 corridor between Lansdale and Doylestown in the event that the affected stations were to close.
