Kevin Kaster attended the opening of the first bus stop with the stadium seats, and interviewed Michael Bricker of People for Urban Progress:
"Kaster: How did this opportunity happen?
Michael Bricker: Ryan Fitzpatrick and his brother Kevin (from organization called Ecolaborative) were working with the Bush Stadium reuse people and came up to us with the idea for salvaging the seats. We also had an intern named Ryan Gallagher, whose college thesis was based on increasing bus ridership, and he believed that increasing amenities would help towards that goal. Basically, our organization was the facilitator that brought these two ideas together."
