Residents seek expanded transportation options in Longview, TX

News-Journal: "A woman working with homeless families in Longview didn't have to think twice about what's needed in local transportation Monday.

"My main thing is, we need more," Longview Interfaith Hospitality Network Case Manager Martha Nichols said, early in a public input session for a five-year update on transportation needs in a 14-county region. "We need more buses, we need more hours (of operation) in the day. We need for routes not to take quite so long. ... I would love to see it (operate) seven days.""
