Connective Corridor takes off

In this morning’s Post-Standard, Marnie Eisenstadt reports on the Connective Corridor linking Syracuse University to downtown Syracuse. It’s finally starting to take shape with benches, bike lanes, decorative lighting, new sidewalks and signs.

And, a free bus that runs from the SU campus to the downtown Warehouse building (where there are SU classrooms). It also goes over to the Near West Side, back to the Warehouse and then back to SU’s main campus.

They are Centro buses and serve mostly as a shuttle for students but they are open to the public. SU pays Centro $450,000 a year to run that bus route and others, according to the story.

Some see this enhanced corridor as a boon to economic development in the area. Some disagree and think that the $48 million of public money could have been spent in other ways.

Read the story. Would love to hear your comments.
