CM Bonin on Big Blue Bus Major Service Changes

I have been copied on a tremendous amount of email to the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus Company regarding upcoming changes in service.  I want to assure you I am listening, and want to make sure Big Blue is listening, too. 

Many of you have expressed great frustration with the elimination of service on certain streets, while others have objected to plans for new service to travel down the street you live on.  Pretty much everyone expressed concerns about the outreach that had been done about the changes.

Help Fix Venice Sidewalks - Walking Survey
Want to help fix the sidewalks in Venice? A truck is scheduled to be in Venice on 3/24/2016 to do small repairs to our sidewalks.  Your VNC Neighborhood Committee needs help to identify the repairs.   And we'd like your help!!
We'll be walking our neighborhoods over the next several weeks to identify mis-aligned sidewalk sections that can be repaired with a ramp from the lower section to the higher.

Will you help us with our survey?
