I spent a chunk of time at a conference at Rivers, here was the view. Lots of geese down below!
Times are tough for PAT riders. Out east, a giant sinkhole swallowed up a Park-n-Ride and the owners of the land (not Giant Eagle who leases, mind you), decided that after a short time allowing a temporary Park-n-Ride, that they were going to end that agreement. Combine that with the annual closure of another lot for a Christmas Tree sale, and about 350 Park-n-Ride spaces have been lost.
However, my route has been happy to take up the slack (although, hey PAT, we need bigger busses for December for our route!). My dream has been that we are kind and considerate hosts. I’ve been told that we have funny and engaging conversations (I’m normally asleep, so I can’t speak to that).
