  1. The meeting is NOT at Himmel Park Library but rather the Transit Services Conference Room which is 149 N. Stone Ave (next to Lil’ Cafe Poca Cosa).

  2. The  new Pedestrian Advisory Committee should ask Tucson Police to stop and write tickets when Sun Tran bus riders get off a bus then  immediately walk or run into the street instead of going to the corner of the intersection to use the crosswalk. Needing to transfer to a bus route on the intersecting street is no excuse for this illegal reckless behavior. It happens thousands of times each day here, especially at Broadway & Alvernon, Prince & First, and Alvernon & Speedway.
