Recently, I had a chance to respond to a commentary piece published in the Roanoke Times.

In case you missed it, I am reprinting my response in full, below.
RIDE Solutions, the Roanoke Arts Commission and the Greater Roanoke Transit Company are thrilled to present the 3rd Annual Art by Bus program. Art by Bus promotes the value of public transportation to our community by bringing visual arts, musical performances, and inspired writing onto the valley’s bus network.

Today’s rainy day has reminded me that I’m behind on a post I meant to write a few weeks ago.

The goal: to give attendees a first-hand experience of what it would be like to be car-free in Roanoke.
