I am not sure how I missed this one, and for that matter why I have'nt seen anything here at Beaconcitizen.com,but there is a NEW DC LOOP route G bus efective11/24/12 that is in effect the pre June 2010 DC LOOP Beacon shuttle bus
the route G starts and ends at the MNRR Beacon Hudson line station and operates Mo. - Sat. - however only from 12:00 PM to 6:30 PM
aparently Cynthia Ruiz,of the DC LOOP,has responded to some of my sugestions for DC LOOP service in Beacon
the route G was actualy a sugested new route I had proposed for the period after restoration of passenger service on the Beacon line - as part of the major changes to the DC LOOP - the LOOP route B would not go to Beacon and instead,as this routes southern terminus,the route B would end at the new transit hub in Fishkill (with the I84 exit 12 park-n-ride lot and the MNRR train station - funded by Ikea?)
to serve Beacon there would be a new route G that would go from Wappingers Falls along the Hudson river to serve the river vilages of New Hamburg and Chelsea - at certain times the bus would go into the VA Castle Point facility via the'back entrance'
the route for this new LOOP bus looks very familiar - I think I had also sent Cynthia Ruiz my proposed Beacon loop map
the above is my proposed weekend,post train,Beacon loop map
now if Sunday service can be added and seasonaly on weekendes that trolley bus that is sitting in the LOOP garage collecting dust can be used .... (FYI: I had seen the trolley bus being used for a regular LOOP route - the old route 5 on SR55 - so don't let the county BS you into thinking this bus is for charter service only - it is a transit bus - albeit a very fancy transit bus)
now if I can apply my powers of influence on Mr. Permut ....
