The hints should have been coming that the CCC was in fact not going to start any time soon, if you ever took a look around the proposed routes. All summer there were no signs, no dedicated lanes, no shelters, or anything going up that screamed "There's where the new circulator will be!". Instead all of these have just been recently added to along the first line along Lombard and Pratt streets.
What does "Coming this Fall" mean anyway? It's clearly not by the Autumnal Equinox, because that was yesterday. Maybe October? November? Sometime prior to the start of winter on December 21st? I would sure hope it's before that day, since the third of three lines is supposed to be operational by the end of December. That's the one that will go along Charles St. and St Paul.
Maybe the CCC missed the opportunity for all the summer tourism we get in the city, but that's OK, the three lines will be operational for all the Holiday tourists, you know the ones that do their Christmas shopping
I'm sure this will be great when it gets up and running, but making vague announcements about start times, and proposed routes without anything definitive, does not encourage us. In fact, we're as confused as ever.
