BaseTIDE Meetings: Fly, My Monkeys!
Hampton Roads Transit’s terrible website is making it exasperatingly difficult to get information about public meetings on BaseTIDE (and impossible in the case of BeachTIDE), to the point that I’m wondering if it’s intentional.
But they’re sending this via email:
All of the September workshops will take place between 6-7:30 p.m. at the following dates and places:
- Tuesday, Sept. 10, Holiday Inn Virginia Beach-Norfolk Hotel and Conference Center, 5655 Greenwich Road. This location is served by nearby bus routes 22 and 27. [Ed: TIDE is a 12-minute walk.]
- Wednesday, Sept. 11, Norview High School, Cafeteria, 6501 Chesapeake Blvd., Norfolk. This location is served by bus route No. 3.
- Thursday, Sept. 12, Ted Constant Convocation Center (ODU), 4320 Hampton Blvd., Norfolk. This location is served by bus routes 2, 4 and 16.
Go! Go go go! If you care about making transit useful and abundant in Hampton Roads and are within driving distance of any of these meetings, you really need to be there. TIDE won’t work without a line connecting downtown Norfolk to the Naval Base, west side and Oceanfront, filling it with commuters, tourists, and revelers (each one of which is one less car and/or drunk driver on the street).
