I feel that when it comes to long-range transportation here in the Valley, we shouldn't forget the need for suitable rail and bus service to connect the area with the rest of the country. I believe it was the Guest from Grottoes that mentioned in a comment a couple days ago that Harrisonburg doesn't even have a bus terminal. I understand that rail service might be pushing it but come on, we can't even have a bus station?
So I hope that the powers up above will keep this in mind as we keep growing.

Regarding SHD, I feel that we should use Charlottesville's airport as an example. They provide around 50 daily non-stop flights to six major cities: Chicago, NYC , Atlanta , Charlotte NC, Philly, and DC , which are all major international hubs. I wish that SHD would aim for a similar goal that can suit our local needs and constraints.

Revert this area back to a golf course or expand it. This is one of the most useless, overpriced airports I have ever seen. There may be some strategic importance to it, but for civilian air travel, it's really a ripoff in both the planes used, the fares, and the amount of direct destination flights.
