Re: [DSR-2-DOT] The Green Loop Lives (Sort of)
- I'm sure it all boils down to programing, or some lack thereof. I wouldn't put too much into the possible resurgence of any former lines, but more on database information not being updated. I was told that route #6 Buchanan can still be displayed on the destination signs. It's obvious that the new information is being added, e.g. "Rosa Parks Transit Center" was added about a year ago on all coaches. However, it's probably more like new information being programmed in and the old info not being deleted out.

Subject: [DSR-2-DOT] The Green Loop Lives (Sort of)
I was walking downtown around 5:00 pm today and I saw a bus of the 4100 series, I think. The destination sign said "1 Green Loop." The Green Loop has not existed for about 20 years. Why is that route still listed on the buses? Is there a chance that a "Green Loop" will be started? What other no longer existing bus routes are still on bus computers?
While I'm asking questions, I've noticed that you don't get an announcement of the Jeffries Freeway when buses pass over it. And Grand River buses headed downtown announce the Fisher Freeway and the Cass Tech exit twice. Why is that?
