New bus to Orbit Tempe, replace FLASH route

THE NEW | The Orbit buses will take over July 23 starting with two routes. The new buses will replace the Neighborhood Flash, which was never meant to last as long as it did. The new routes, called Mercury and Venus, will include east and west Tempe.

The Neighborhood Flash is no more, but something else will be circulating in its place.

Later this month, Tempe will launch the new Orbit neighborhood circulator service to replace the Neighborhood Flash, which city officials say was never meant to be around so long.

Opinions: Blame game isn't helping environment

CHONG: Last week, Ban Ki-moon, the Secretary General of the United Nations, told the Chatham House (a London based think tank) that too much time was being wasted debating who deserved the blame for global warming and not enough time working on constructive solutions.

He stated, "What I would like to stress is rather than looking at past historical responsibilities, we need to look at historical responsibilities in the future." As a result of this international blame game, many countries refuse to enter environmental treaties.
