Copy of tweets, as link will expire after some time (rail related in bold):

CT2 and CT3 buses may be combined, routed through LMA. CT3 may be extended to JFK/Umass. #URCAC

Love the guy who just bashed this CT bus/BRT stuff and said go straight to rail. #URCAC

#URCAC meeting over; tweeting will now subside. @broadway_jayD

Also; the commuter rail stop at Sullivan Square was brought up. I thought that idea was dead (and I hope it will never happen, so long as there is no urban ring rail), but apparently there is still life to it.

I'd recommend minimal discussion here due to what I would expect to be minimal discussion of rail, as everything was primarily in regard to buses. Also, we have threads in relation to all of the aforementioned rail projects. The intent of this thread is to inform you folks of what is going on in the Urban Ring Citizens Advisory Committee meetings, that is all.

ANY Urban Ring Discussion is banned here, since it revolves around buses. Sorry.
