Good changes this year, and room for improvement

There’s some changes I appreciated this year, and I’m going to blog about them here very soon.

1. ArtBus Shuttle: two routes and more stops, not limited almost exclusively to exhibition centers. Feels like it’s getting you where you want to go faster and closer. They also partnered with Hope Network to provide accessible transportation for those with wheelchairs and walkers – still requires a shuttle pass – ask a wayfinder for a card with the number to call.

Room for improvement:

-Shuttle drivers are requesting wayfinders on board – seems like a good idea, questions get asked on them.

-Clarity on using the Alpine bus route to see some art that way – it’s a good option if planning around the schedule. There’s already dots on the map for ArtBus stops, I’d add dots for other route stops, at least those near venues.

-Dash information – a free way to hop around town.

-Maybe a north shuttle which covers some more venues up there, making the other shuttles south-east (blue) and south-west/central (pink). I’d suggest the third route cover north Monroe and Front street.

2. Neighborhood Top 25: showcased pieces in less-visited neighborhoods…

Room for improvement:

-…but such neighborhoods still didn’t seem to get much exposure. I think each neighborhood should be represented in the second round of voting, so elsewhere I described a representative pool, where each neighborhood would have a number of their top 25 corresponding to their total number of pieces move on to the pool, from which the top ten would be chosen during the second week, still ending with the second week.
