  1. Great development, but it’s a cruel irony that Mike Antonovich gets to bask in the glory of it since won his seat on the Board by defeating a guy who campaigned for a countywide LRT system (and who was ridiculed for it at the time). #BaxterWard

  2. Can anyone tell me if these BYD buses have been certified by the USDOT yet via the testing center at Altoona?
