I was thinking about going, but was also wondering who else might be heading up that way? Would love to meet, have a cup of coffee, discuss some transit topics, etc.


    1. ARG, I hope you guys can meetup. I’m a bum and totally slept in until just now! :/ I think this last week has left me sleep deprived. Now I’m perturbed at myself. I’m going to go ride around on a bus until I feel better. πŸ™‚ doh!
