VALPARAISO | A study by RLS and Associates Inc. of the V-Line intracity bus service recommends several additions to the routes and the hours of operation to meet the demands of riders, but city Planning Director Tyler Kent said Valparaiso can't do much without added funding.
VALPARAISO | The V-Line route study is going to take a little longer than originally planned, but that means the extra hours of service on the Purple and the Brown routes will continue for at least another six months.
VALPARAISO | February was a short, cold, snowy month, which could be the reason V-Line ridership in Valparaiso was down a little bit, but it continued a trend begun in August of averaging more than 12,000 riders a month.

VALPARAISO | Maybe people like the convenience. Maybe it's the camaraderie with the other passengers. Maybe people just don't want to have to drive the roundabouts.
VALPARAISO | When the city started the ChicaGo Dash express commuter bus service in 2008, officials knew there was a need but they didn't know it would grow to its current level of four buses a day each way.
VALPARAISO | The public has suggestions on how to improve the V-Line intracity bus service, and now it is up to the consultants to find the solutions.
VALPARAISO | The V-Line buses that critics once said were filled with invisible riders now carry so many people the city is extending hours and adding routes to try to accommodate them.
VALPARAISO | The days for the historic Victorian house at the corner of Jefferson and Lafayette Streets appear to be numbered.
Competition among colleges and universities for the best students is constant, spirited and multifaceted. These days, it isn’t enough to “just” have top-flight faculty and facilities. Students are looking for numerous other perks, and a key one today is mass transit.
