We need FREQUENT AND RELIABLE service all day, every day including Saturdays and Sundays and at night. Folks don't only leave their house for work M-F. We have whole complete lives, and we depend on public transit to get us there to live them. twitter.com/JayUrban11/sta…

@GCRTA Will there be a new schedule published for the Redline that will reflect the 66R buses on the east side of the route?
Riders deserve better communication from @GCRTA . twitter.com/asubaruoutback…

@skiingdom @GCRTA Great question.
Quite a contrast to the @GCRTA rider experience! twitter.com/jsteirer/statu…
Hey @GCRTA what's up with the 19 bus in @transitapp right now?
Is this accurate?
Attention Eastside Red Line Riders:
From 4/2 to 4/29 shuttle buses will run every 30 minutes between Tower City and Stokes Windermere.
Buses will not stop at East 34 or East 55 stations, Green and Blue Line will still be running.
The alert is not posted on @GCRTA website..

Updates to @GCRTA's paratransit ride scheduling site are on hold till 2024. Outside vendor @trapezegroup provides the software for the site.

Which ones? The mag-stripe validators at HealthLine and Red Line stations, or the @Masabi_com validators on buses? twitter.com/GCRTA/status/1…

“Trustees, I would like you to bring representatives of Trapeze (@trapezegroup) before you to ask them why they are leaving the disabled community behind,” Martin said to the @GCRTA board today.
“Agency staff has told CPT (@CLEforTransit) that the paratransit website is run by a third-party vendor named Trapeze (@trapezegroup) and that therefore RTA has no power to update that website. That’s bunkum,” CPT chair Chris Martin said at today’s @GCRTA board meeting.
.@GCRTA had previously confused a Jan. 31 public comment by paratransit rider & @CLEforTransit vice chair Shalida Dobbins as referring to RTA's main website, which is in beta testing. Dobbins' comment was about the paratransit ride scheduling site, she confirmed to The Land.
At today’s @GCRTA board meeting, @CLEforTransit (CPT) chair Chris Martin made a public comment about the situation.
While @GCRTA’s main website is going through the beta testing phase of an update, updates to the paratransit ride scheduling site are on hold until 2024. Paratransit riders say the scheduling site is inaccessible for people with disabilities. 🧵

@briangerard13 @CLEforTransit @GCRTA NYC has millions of citizens yet their transit system have electronic signs throughout their system. And it's a vital part of the daily commute. If it works great and their commuters appreciate having it, why can't that be the case here?

With #coffeshops etc available on @CLEPublicSquare
I agree with
@CLEforTransit #restrooms on/adjacent will be a HolyGrail to weary early morning #transit
How about two of these⬇️
@briangerard13 @swandad @GCRTA Ableism is never a good look.
@briangerard13 @swandad @GCRTA Maybe FOR YOU but others could benefit from it.
@briangerard13 @swandad @GCRTA Not really.
@briangerard13 @swandad @GCRTA AND accessible 💜💜
@briangerard13 @swandad @GCRTA A public transit system should have signs to make sure everything is accessible for everyone. Things happen with phones, having a sign is not a huge ask 🤷🏽♀️
@briangerard13 @swandad @GCRTA No not really. Technology is a privilege a lot of people don’t have access to. Also, phones run out of battery life. Having something like an electric sign is important.
@briangerard13 @swandad @GCRTA Not everyone has a smartphone
Ableism is about more than disability. It is devaluing and ascribing inferiority to those who are different.
The notion that disabled people should supply their own access & accommodation is absurd. Do we expect a wheelchair user to carry a ramp? Do we expect deaf people to bring their own interpreters? Stop blaming disabled people. Inaccessibility and ableism are the problem.
