Marjorie Shaver-Jones, President of the Copeland Park Community Association is concerned the planning and environmental assessment study on the project will be rubber-stamped by the Transportation Committee at its February 1 meeting.

“The current proposed project isn’t the best the city can offer and we’d like something better. We think that the dollars can be spent much more wisely to create a much more user-friendly bus system that is an improvement on Baseline Road,” she said.

One sticking point is the city’s plan to place bus stops at medians instead of curbside pickup.
