My good friend in Youngstown, John Slanina, recently organized a group bus ride around Youngstown’s Mahoning County.
This video is one of the results.
Slanina sent an email to 20 friends and asked them to bring a friend and meet him at the bus stop. The experience was meant to familiarize local residents with the public transportation system.
Youngstown won a hard-fought battle at the polls in November to institute a county-wide sales tax to rescue their bus system, which has slashed weekend and night service due to a budget crunch.
This is a good idea. John is always full of good ideas.
