  1. The 2 Shuttle should be renumbered as the 602. It would also be great if the route takes over the 534 either heading south to Santa Monica or west to PCH/Trancas.

  2. So what about the 233? It says that it will replace the owl service on the 656 but does not give any details. I am assuming its going to still run from Panorama Mall (Chase/Tobias) but what is the south end? Hopefully Ventura Blvd.
