Thursday the 22nd, Cherriots' Board meets and there's a couple of minor, but interesting items.

The Rideshare report has nothing of great moment, but it's interesting to continue to follow the user metrics.

The "Ridematching statistics" are a running, cumulative count rather than one quarter's worth, it should be noted.

It looks like the Rideshare Strategic Plan is in motion, and it will be interesting to learn more about the stakeholder interviews.

Carpoolooza - I think the syllabification works better visually than aurally, though I do like to parse it as Car-Poo-Looza, since cars are kinda poopy - also looks interesting.

Not Rideshare, apparently a previous iteration of the Cherriots Citizen Advisory Committee wasn't working, so they iterated anew and have some new appointments.

Gary will be a great advocate for the transit - bike/ped interface, but it's interesting he's identified as representing "recreation" rather than multi-modal commuting or the "last mile."
