Welcome to the Public Transit Roundup by HARTride 2012! This blog is where I will be posting the latest news and happenings that revolve around public transit! This blog is a supplement to my main website, Public Transit as told by HARTride 2012, which first opened in April of 2008 and has evolved ever since!
I was originally posting links to news stories and other neat finds regarding public transit on my social media channels on a daily basis. I called this daily task my “Public Transit Roundup”. However, I then realized that this method of posting every single item I found onto my social media channels was becoming redundant and cluttered. I also realized that even though Twitter is perfect for “real-time” updates, seeing tons and tons of links and shares on a Facebook news feed wasn’t quite so organized. So I came up with the idea to create this blog, so that I can continue compiling the day’s transit news in a format that won’t fill up my followers’ news feeds.
Now this doesn’t mean I will stop posting on my social media channels altogether; it just simply means I’m trying out a new organized format for most of my “roundup” posts. I will still post “breaking news” items, information on upcoming transit meetings, and other important items on my social media channels. However, this blog will reduce the amount of other items that are posted to these channels.
With that said, I’m always open to new ideas for my blog! If you would like to suggest something for an upcoming post, please feel free to drop me a line via my contact form below.
