Bus Me In

It looks like the city was able to negotiate a plan with those pompous shopping centers that banned the CAT buses from entering their shopping centers.  You can read more about it from WRAL's article.

It looks like Creedmoor North will allow the bus to go through its shopping center but Brier Creek will need to make some changes - as in restructuring parts of the center - to allow the transit system to run through it.  This is quite strange since it is a new facility and one would think they would have considered that.

Well, whaddayaknow?  It appears, the developers DID think of that -- at least according to this WRAL report:

The Brier Creek developer wrote a letter to the city in 2001 promising "to accommodate reasonable future access needs on the Brier Creek Commons site."

I guess I shouldn't try to poke holes in the intention of money-grubbing developers.  At least they are working towards the right goal, whether begrudgingly or not.

BTW, the other two shopping centers were no longer considered, what I'd like to say, WORTHY enough for the CAT system to go through their centers.  I don't know if this is good for them (and perhaps they think it is?) or good for the rest of the community...
