I wished they would paint the Pulse lanes already.  I seem to recall the city securing the money for that (some federal grant) 6-8 months ago. 

I'm wishing the same.  I've also been waiting for these accordian-buses :tw_grin: for some time now.  

I posted about this in an outside thread, but a few weekends ago I was on the Pulse on a Sunday and there was standing room only front-to-back.  I contrasted this with the Tide in Norfolk after spending a few days riding the line on a weekend trip.  The difference was REAL.  

It's such a stretch, but I hope rail in Richmond is not an afterthought.

I fully agree, Richmonopoly! I hope it's still part of the equation and maybe at some point we see it.

When it rains it pours -- GRTC cutting service because of a driver and mechanic shortage (pandemic-related). I'm not sure why I opened the Times-Dispatch today - two for two on developments that aren't good.

I hope and pray they can get this sorted out as quick as is reasonably possible. As things (hopefully) continue to improve with the pandemic, GRTC will get back to full strength.
