HTA - New Apps Make It Simple

Happy Trails / Tuesday, April 18

This morning Emily and I spoke with Greg Pratt, General Manager of Humboldt Transit Authority. HTA has been making bike community combined with bus rides a reality for some time here in Humboldt. But now with the launch of a couple of new apps for both iPhone and Android, things have gotten even easier. The Swiftly app helps you track busses so you can know exactly where they are on their route at anytime. There is also the Token Transit app allowing you to purchase your fair from your smart phone.

Trails In Trinadad

Happy Trails / Tuesday, April 11

This morning Carol Vandermeer and I spoke with Ben Morehead of the Trinidad Coastal Land Trust. We spoke of the extensive trail network that already exists. We also talked about a project most of us trail advocates are very excited about. That would be the extension of the Hammond Trail all the way to Trinidad. The Hammond will eventually cross Little River and hook into the Little River Trail. The biggest hurdle is how to get over Little River. The preferred proposal would have a cantilevered extension of the existing 101 bridge over Little River.
