Checked the radio to make sure those TG's were in there, they are but I haven't heard any RIPTA traffic in a few weeks now. RIPTA is probably not the most popular TG to listen to, but a lot of the traffic I have heard has been very humorous.
Um, where did you obtain that information from? I've been riding RIPTA buses all throughout the virus crisis & they have, much to their credit, not cut back on service at all. As a matter of fact, they have increased service on several routes on weekends.They are on a severely reduced schedule as of late.
6 MONTHS ago when this thread began, RIPTA had severly reduced it schedule. And as a result, 6 MONTHS ago RIPTA radio traffic was reduced. Unfortunately their daily airtime is increasing.........a giant waste of RISCON system resources.
Doesn't change the fact that hardly anyone was riding, hardly anyone was on the road and the main contributor to radio traffic is caused by human problems (accidents, construction, building fires, etc.) that have to deal with operational challenges and those human problems were non-existent at that time. While the schedule may not have changed, utilization definitely did, which resulted in reduced radio use.FINAL WORDS
FROM RIPTA - MARCH 2020
Chief Executive of RIPTA Scott Avedisian tells Eyewitness News that every single bus is being thoroughly disinfected once, sometimes twice, a day.www.wpri.com
