    Good news, and long overdue. Now if we could just get service to the airport.

    Sounds like a great plan, and if executed well could perhaps help with some of the perceived parking woes in the Short North.

    Love this idea! And some really cool eye-catching branding to identify it would be great as well.

    Tying downtown together with the Short North and GV/Brewery District seem like a really great benefit. I’d like to see a route mapped out similar to this,

    COTA posted some info about upcoming service improvements on their Facebook in response to a rider’s question,

    COTA said: Real Time bus tracking 2014, Smart Cards will be investigated during 2014, BRT funding got FTA approval to next phase of project development, new bus shelters on High likely late 2014.

    Looks like a lot of improvements scheduled to roll out over the next year or so!
