This will be my last posting at On the Bus.
Nearly six years ago I started blogging. I didn’t really know what I was doing then and, in fact, there are some who will argue that I still don’t know what I’m doing.
That blog (http://whenthemayorsmiles.blogspot.ca/ hasn’t got so much attention from me over the last months.
That is because in October 2010 my frustration with local media’s poor coverage and local council’s poor understanding of public transit prompted me to set up this blog. That’s where most of my energy has gone of late.
Some of you will be aware that I’m moving later this month and, even with all the technology we have these days that allows us to keep up with goings on, I think it is going to be pretty difficult to keep in touch with Burlington and GTA Transit matters from Port Rowan in west Norfolk County.
Now with the establishment of the Burlington for Accessible Transit (Bfast) group I’m confident there will be more good info available on suburban transit. They’re on Facebook at BFASTransit and twitter @BFASTransit.
I may have something to say on When the Mayor Smiles down the line. I’ve also started a new blog (Bob’s Blog) with Forever Young Magazine. You can find my first piece on line at http://foreveryoungnews.com/posts/1794-bob-s-blog-assignment-be-insightful-and-funny.
A final comment is in order. In a recent post I credited Burlington Transit with having 52 buses with 71 of them being more than 18 years old. Bad math or bad typing? I’ve corrected that. They’ve got seven (7) old buses.
One feels foolish making such a mistake but I take some comfort in the fact that similarly ridiculous statements from some local politicians inspired the creation of this blog and have help sustain it over the past two years.
