The Elm Avenue Park and Ride offers a convenient way to get downtown without the hassles of urban traffic. Located next to the Elm Avenue Park at the end of the Delmar Bypass (NY 32), it is serviced by several buses that will quickly transport you downtown.

There is a new, expanded schedule for the Elm Avenue Park and Ride. 5 morning buses depart there, 5 buses in the afternoon plus a mid-day bus schedule. Very convenient. http://www.cdta.org/uploads/Route719.pdf

Partnerships for Opportunity and Workforce and Economic Revitalization (POWER) Initiative – Appalachian Regional Commission

"POWER (Partnerships for Opportunity and Workforce and Economic Revitalization) is a congressionally funded initiative that targets federal resources to help communities and regions that have been affected by job losses in coal mining, coal power plant operations, and coal-related supply chain industries due to the changing economics of America's energy production."

"The POWER Initiative supports efforts to create a more vibrant economic future for coal-impacted communities by cultivating economic diversity, enhancing job training and re-employment opportunities, creating jobs in existing or new industries, and attracting new sources of investment."

Appalachian Regional Commission – Wikipedia

"The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) is a United States federal-state partnership that works with the people of Appalachia to create opportunities for self-sustaining economic development and improved quality of life. Congress established ARC to bring the region into socioeconomic parity with the rest of the nation."

"The Appalachian Region, as defined by Congress, includes all of West Virginia and portions of 12 other states: Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. ARC serves 420 counties that encompass roughly 205,000 square miles, with a population of more than 25 million people."

Articulated Bus in Seattle slides on snow

Tomorrow, CDTA gets to see how their 10 or so new articulated pusher buses will preform in the snow and ice.

Pusher buses are notoriously bad in the snow, they use the TRAILER rather then the TRACTOR to "push" them along the road. It's the opposite of semi-trucks that use the tractor to pull the trailer. Air pistons keep them from jackknifing when the steering wheel is going straight in normal weather, but they don't do very good in snow and ice.

Of course, they could just leave the articulated buses parked and just use the normal buses. But what fun would that be?
