Como Park Shuttle / Circulator project

I wrote up some information about the Como Park shuttle / circulator project on my comopark.us web site.. Within an hour a “Google search” showed my post in the #1 spot. After editing a typo it disappeared, though. I am curious whether linking to it from this post will get it back onto page one when searching for the terms Como Park shuttle. The information about the Como Park Shuttle is quoted here.

A shuttle has been in the master plans since at least 1985 (see below)
$1.2 million federal grant for a pilot project (+ a small matching requirement)

Study:

A survey on the Como website is pointing toward a 10 minute loop

Planning:

Where to park (probably south of fairgrounds across Como)
Contract in the works – Fairgrounds too restrictive
Route East on Como to Lexington; North to Estabrook/Nason Place; unload in front of Conservatory: loop back to beginning.
Purchase:
At least (2) 20-25 passenger vehicles that are handicap/stroller friendly
Metro Transit contracted to operate
Construct bus shelters
Implement:
Hope to start in 2009
only weekends at beginning
