People are SO busy these days that it’s often hard to get them to a public meeting or open house to get input from them. Especially on planning topics such as SRTC deals with that typically won’t be constructed for at least a couple years and possible ten to 20. So one El Paso congressman had a great idea that I may need to steal and adapt.

Congressman Beto O’Rourke wasn’t satisfied that he was reaching a broad enough segment of his constituents with traditional town-hall meetings, so he took his show on the road. Literally. Now O’Rourke holds meetings on local buses in order to reach people that typically don’t show up at regular meetings. And apparently transit riders have been pretty engaged.
Here’s the story from the DC Streets Blog.
