Raleigh's hybrid circulator

Raleigh's new downtown circulator bus is a great—hybrid and free! And I think it is routed to connect to the parking garages—great work! Yet, I have concerns:

  1. I don’t see a BIKE RACK in the photo.
  2. It is a perversion of the term to call this “BRT”. This is good, but it is NOT BRT. Please don’t insult our intelligence.
  3. Is it a BIO-diesel hybrid? Grease disposal is a big problem in Raleigh, causing sanitary sewer overflows. This bus centers on a high restaurant density area and should burn waste veg oil.
  4. Will there be supporting WAY FINDING improvements for riders? Especially important for out of town guests.
