Buses in Boise currently park on a big horseshoe of city blocks surrounding the Boise Hole. Valley Regional Transit wants to build a shiny new downtown "transit hub" on 11th Street in cahoots with the city. At one point, they wanted it on 10th Street, until businesses complained. Then Mayor Dave Bieter said, it's just a bus station because there is no transit. He wanted it to be located at City Hall. Despite the hub hubbub, the application for federal money to build on 11th Street continues. We have another question: Can we start running the buses at night and on Sundays at this new hub? Or the old one?
