    Thanks for the link.

    Thanks also for the historical “flashbacks” you do in each month’s print issue…keep it up!

    And looking forward to those PDF archives….

    This is not NextBus (www.nextbus.com) this is a fake that simply tells you what the piece of paper on the pole says. Sounds like trademark infringement to me…

    David:
    It’s our 33333 SMS text service! You are right about there being another service with a similar name though: we spell ours “Next Bus” to differentiate ourselves from the nextbus.com service. I missed the space in a couple of spots, but have changed it to reflect.
