I worked as an intern for one of the local news blogs and the owner of the blog was repeatedly informed by the County Manager's office that he would lose his advertisers and never be given another exclusive by the County Board if anything whatever was published about bus rapid transit. So nothing has been published.
Mary Hynes is flat-out lying when she states that citizens have access to comprehensive information about Pike transit. The comprehensive information has been about streetcars and streetcar systems. The news blog where I worked received repeated requests to publish information about bus rapid transit, but the blog's owner was afraid to comply.

According to the County Board's meeting agenda, the meeting will be a "County Board work session with representatives from jurisdictions that have implemented streetcar or other similar transit projects to discuss alternative delivery mechanisms. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend."
