Communication of the City Manager transmitting informational communication regarding the opening of a new Worcester Regional Transit Authority (WRTA) Hub at Union Station.
# 8.32A CM April 23, 2013
Petition of Jo Hart request the City Council immediately restore our bus system and hire a transportation planner to take over the WRTA to create a new network of buses, no hub, for bus riders to transfer to another bus wherever it intersects: a new intelligent mode of economic travel that conserves pollution, time and money for Worcester's public transportation system.
