Another option would be to approve the pipeline.
I live near one of the district's larger high schools. In the morning I see a steady stream of RTS bus after bus after bus all with headsigns showing that they're coming from every different part of the city. I realize this must be playing out at other schools too and I wonder just how many buses must be involved overall.
I get it that this article is mostly about the older students who use the transit system, but I think there's room for improvement in how younger students are transported too.
I sometimes walk to work during the morning hour and this experience has given me the sense that the school district has a wrong idea of where many of the grade school-aged children live in my neighborhood. I see a lot of yellow buses repeatedly stopping and honking their horns but with no kids ever coming out of the house. Two or three stops in a row I've seen this go on.
There's many different yellow buses swarming the same streets in my neighborhood, I think because area kids are enrolled to many different schools.
Enabling Facebook comments is fine as long as using a regular City account remains an option too. Some people prefer to not have Facebook accounts for various reasons.
Good reporting. I agree with Kwai's comment - this is something worth checking out and perhaps getting involved with.
Whether or not this is benefitting Rochester, there really is no question. Many of the residents in the lofts downtown and in High Falls are young professionals. YP housing is what Midtown and Sibley are currently being repurposed for. YPs and empty nesters are basically the main thing that Rochester has positioned itself to attract, and these segments are where a lot of Rochester's recent success have come from.
Many younger people come to Rochester as college students and reside initially in the Southeast neighborhoods or perhaps around PLEX. The well-established rental markets and commercial corridors (e.g. Monroe Avenue) make these areas magnets for college-age people on a budget. These people are having positive experiences with the city and are often staying in place or exploring slightly upmarket options nearby while they start off careers.
I get it that O'Brien is principled but from a political standpoint he really screwed the pooch with his support for the SAFE act. In the 55th Senate district? His re-election bid would have been a tough one in this cycle regardless, but if I had to pick out one key reason why I think he's most likely to lose his job tomorrow, that's it.
