Each month during 2013, we’re exploring a special topic in the Buzzer newsletter and blog!
Last month we wrote about TransLink 101—and for March/April, we’ll be focusing on Life on Transit! (And don’t worry, we’ll still post about other content too!)
What’s Life on Transit about?
With Life on Transit, we’re hoping to spotlight the experience of riding transit—that is, observing and illuminating the quirks and habits of daily transit rides around our region.
We’ll be doing polls, open threads, interviews and more around the following topics:
- Here’s a poll about having a secret friend on transit—people who you see at your stop, but haven’t talked to?
- We spotlight an operator for Bus Driver Appreciation Day!
- A Google Hangout about the history of the 96 year-old Buzzer newsletter!
- Tools, tips, and tricks for a smooth transit trip
- An interview with TransLink planner Ian Fisher about life on transit elsewhere
- An interview with the authors behind the TransLinked tumblr
- Pet peeves: etiquette on transit
- … and more!
Longtime Buzzer blog readers might remember some of these topics from polls we ran in the first few years of this blog :) Well, they’re so nice we’re covering them twice!
