The Princeton Packet reported this past Friday that the Free B shuttle will now run on weekends for the Christmas season. The "Free B Jitney Shuttle" link on the princetonboro.org website does not tell the whole story, since the Free B now apparently runs straight through from 5:30am to 9pm. These two links
along with the text below, borrowed from a public library newsletter, should tell the whole story of the stealthy shuttle's current schedule.
"Starting at the Suzanne Patterson Center at 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. and 12:30, 1:30 and 2:30 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, the free jitney will stop at Elm Court, Palmer Square, the library, Princeton Shopping Center, Community Park Pool, Princeton Community Village and many popular intersections throughout Princeton. Thanks to Princeton Borough, Princeton Township, Princeton University and the Community Transportation Coordination Initiative for extending this service on a trial basis."
I've informally explored and documented recycling receptacle designs--which vary from effective to self-defeating--in Princeton and elsewhere, many of which are posted at www.recyclingcontainers.blogspot.com. A post about how the Hinds Plaza containers could be retrofitted to improve their function can be found here.
