Do you have additional comments regarding these greenways?
Re: Beaucatcher Greenway - support this only with maximum tree preservation - favor tree preservation over providing parking and paved portions. Re: French Broad River West Greenway - favor enhancement through planting of edibles along greenway route; ideally City would pay for installation with maintenance conducted by community group(s).

Please provide any other thoughts about bus service in and around Asheville below.
Better alert system/ communication over loud speaker at transfer station (ie: when a bus is cancelled because it's "too late") but I did not know about the next bus app.
I'm concerned with the S5 when the large new apartment complex near Biltmore village opens. There is already heavy traffic through Biltmore village and the S5 is usually late due to traffic.
Better communication with the drivers and riders. I was picked up one morning in October at 7am to only go a mile and the driver pulled into a church and we sat there... after 5 minutes I asked what was wrong and the driver said he was waiting on Asheville police department because someone hit him prior to me getting on bus. I was suppose to catch the 730 transfer to get to work on time. Why did he not tell me this before I got on the bus so I could have tried to get to work another way and not be late. He was also rude to me about it and said didn't I hear him talking to dispatch, which I did but I can't hear well. I did not hear what was being said.

Do you have additional comments regarding these greenways?
Improving non-motorized transportation options from Carrier Park to downtown is quite appealing. Additionally having the RAD greenways completed in the same time frame as the RADTIP project makes good sense to me.
