Villages and Mr. Reeves don't seem to care
On Monday, a child, on the way home from school, was dropped off at the end of Brightwood loop so she need to walk up the dark, grey narrow road to get to Brightwood.
Fortunately, nothing bad happened.
Apparently, the Mountain Express Bus scheduled changed: on Monday!
Didn't know? Neither did I.
Apparently, due to the Sandy Transit Center route changes, the Bus now
