GRTA Plans Systemwide Changes To Commuter Bus Service

first_img 0:58Next week, the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority is accepting public comments on the commuter bus service system’s first major overhaul since it launched in 2004.  GRTA’s external affairs officer Matt Markham said the state transit agency is looking to add a new bus route to Perimeter Center and streamline some routes.“Starting with one route in 2004 and growing over the course of the last decade, we got to a point where the service was built out,” Markham said. “So now we’re coming to the point where we need to look at what the next decade [will look] like and beyond.”The commuter bus service started off with just one route in 2004 and now has more than 30 routes in the 12 Atlanta area counties where it operates.Markham said the state transit agency began looking at how it could expand and improve service in 2014. “We are going to be improving the way the buses move through downtown in order to get them in and out of the city,” Markham said. “To get people to the major employment centers that they need, but also have the buses on time and more reliable.”The proposed changes call for buses to stop about every two blocks as it moves through major roads like Peachtree Center Avenue and Courtland Street in downtown and Midtown Atlanta.“Buses were getting stuck moving through downtown, making tight turns and getting stuck at lights, and it slows them down,” Markham said. “So the idea is to have the buses move on a direct path so that way they can stick to the schedules.”GRTA plans to reduce the cost of tickets on several routes along I-85 and I-75 north corridor by $1. In the afternoons, it also plans to ask its nearly 9,000 daily riders to pay their fare as they exit, instead of when they get on the bus, to speed up the boarding process. Public hearings will be held in Atlanta on March 29 and 31.  Share For Whom The Bell Rings Related Stories 0:58 | Play story Add to My ListIn My List ‘It’s Fractured’: Georgia Lt.

SunEdison plans to spinoff semiconductor operations

first_imgSunEdison plans to spinoff semiconductor operationsU.S. photovoltaic developer SunEdison announced today that its board of directors has unanimously decided to spin off its semiconductor operations, forming a new company SunEdison Semiconductor Inc. A minority stake in the business will be offered in an IPO. August 23, 2013 Jonathan Gifford Legal Markets Markets & Policy Share On the same day that Norwegian photovoltaic manufacturer REC announced a new offer to bondholders in an attempt to secure the separation of its semiconductor business from its other operations, U.S. developer SunEdison announced plans to spin off its polysilicon operations. The firm plans to offer an IPO in the newly formed SunEdison Semiconductor to repay existing debts amongst other non-specified ends. The IPO is scheduled for early 2013. What the IPO may raise is yet to be determined. “This new structure will allow each independent company to pursue its shareholder value generating strategies, focus on key markets and customers, optimize capital structures, and enhance access to growth capital for each company in the years ahead,” said Ahmad Chatila, SunEdison CEO. Reuters reported that shares in the company jumped 23% on the news, marking the biggest increase in a year. The company posted a loss of over $100 million in its Q2, 2013, results this month but announced that its project pipeline is in excess of 2 GW.

No. 18 of Kyle Busch passes Miami post-race inspection

first_imgThe race-winning No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota of Kyle Busch passed post-race technical inspection Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway with no issues.The No. 18 Toyota was found to be compliant with the 2019 NASCAR Rule Book after Busch won the championship finale in Miami.The No. 95 Leavine Family Racing Toyota of Matt DiBenedetto had one lug nut not safe and secure in post-race inspection. The other Championship 4 cars — the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford of Kevin Harvick, the No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota of Denny Hamlin and the No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota of Martin Truex Jr. — will be taken back to the R&D Center in Concord, North Carolina.With post-race teardown complete, the race results are official. Busch is the 2019 NASCAR champion.RELATED: Results | Busch scores second championshipThe post-race process is part of a new, more timely approach to inspection for all three NASCAR national series. Competition officials announced in February that thorough post-race inspections would take place shortly after the checkered flag at the track instead of midweek at the Research & Development Center.Those inspections come with a stiffer deterrence structure that includes disqualification for significant rules infractions — “a total culture change,” said Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR Executive Vice President and Chief Racing Development Officer. In the past, race-winning teams found in violation of the rules were penalized with post-race fines, points deductions and/or suspensions, but victories were allowed to stand.Competition officials introduced the quicker post-race inspection timetable in an effort to make the results official on race day, aiming for a 90-minute target time frame to complete their scrutinizing. The new post-race inspection process was also designed to deal with potential violations more promptly, avoiding any midweek news that might cloud the previous week’s results or the build-up to the following week’s event.NASCAR will still inspect cars and parts at the R&D Center as needed, but the more comprehensive at-track inspection will take priority.According to NASCAR statistical archives, the last time a premier-series driver was disqualified occurred in 1973, when early retiree Buddy Baker was demoted to last place in the National 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The last time an apparent race winner in NASCAR’s top division was disqualified came on April 17, 1960, when Emanuel Zervakis’ victory at Wilson (N.C.) Speedway was thrown out because of an oversized fuel tank on his No. 85 Chevrolet.last_img read more

In the closed bubble in Florida after the restart of the competition, he lost only twice and especially Damian Lillard showed great performance. And the best scorer of the turn of the season confirmed it with another 42 points and 12 assists.

Due to the development, even a game over Utah would not help him, if they played into the game with the knowledge that the season was over for them.The Spurs have been eliminated for the first time since 1997. Shortly afterwards, San Antonio drafted Tim Duncan’s future star, and the current coach assistant also wrote for the first time in the world that it is not about advancing to the playoffs.Sestih ze zpasu Phoenix – Dallas: Everything once con.
