The trick is to put the concrete under the asphalt so it’s supported better. I think the problem is braking busses push asphalt around. There’s a bad one on Lexington near Bridge street.

Yeah, I've see a few on University East, and there's a pretty bad one at Hagey and Columbia. I can't remember where I've seen others, but it's really annoying when there is this smushed asphalt taking up the bike lane in front of the bus stop.

Worth noting is the 5.8% increase in Q1 2018 ridership and the continuous ridership increases since September 2017.

Great to see the farecard launching in the summer.  Perhaps I won't have to buy more paper tickets.

The Moving Forward plan seems essentially unchanged from last time we saw it, which is sad given that about half the feedback calls out the weak investment in active transportation.

I think this phrasing bugs me the most today:

"Identify opportunities to upgrade facilities to improve separation from traffic, such as separated bike lanes or multi-use trails"

That, to me, reeks of, "we'll put bike lanes where convenient...where there are 'opportunities'...and not where it is difficult or important."
