The Ann Arbor Transportation

towards a reduction of door-to-door
At its Wednesday night meeting the
board set in motion a process to amend
sections of a comprehensive plan

Tom Hackley, the AATA planning
coordinator, explained that a reduction
in Dial-A-Ride service could be
achieved by introducing fixed main line
buses, instead of additional vans, into

The 1975 UATS plan, which was to
have run through 1990, called for a
strong reliance on Dial-A-Ride and a
gradual expansion of the service
throughout the region. The board's shift
in attitude away from expansion was
accelerated by Republican Mayor

those tired of th4
By JERRY LEIINMAN
Tired of the single's oickup scene? An Ann Arbor adult
discussion group offers the chance to meet new people in a
personal and relaxed atmosphere.
The organization, named Expressions, meets biweekly in a
small group of 10 to 12 people to discuss such topics of mutual
interest involving relationships, personal growth and
common life experiences.
PARTICIPANTS CHOOSE to discuss one of two topics
each meeting with the guidance of trained facilitators.
Topics range from "Breaking the Ice", to "After Having
Been Lovers Is It Possible To Be Friends?" and "Anger -
What Do I Do With It?"
Expressions tries to help people develop their dormant
qualities, to become aware, and to express their feelings and
their views openly, honestly, and comfortably, according to
chairperson Steve Cohen.
Cohen stresses that Expressions is not a therapy or an encounter
group. The groups don't attempt to direct people but to help them
The groups don't attempt to direct people but to help them
develop inner strengths and outer appeal in dealing with
others, says Cohen.
"Expressions provides people with the opportunity to
share their understandings and concerns, as well as learn
from others that they are not alone in their thoughts, ideas
and viewpoints," says Cohen.
The group can also provide a way to meet new people.
AN INDEPENDENT, non-profit, volunterr organization,
Expressions has grown rapidly since its inception last
January. The organization averages about 60 people per
session. The group is composed of single and married adults.
Most participants are not members of the University
community, but the group welcomes people from campus to
Expressions meets the fist and third Friday, of each month
at 8:30 p.m. in the Unitarian Church, 1917 Washtenaw. The
$2.50 admission fee covers rental fees for the church and
refreshments for the social hour which follows the discussion
groups. Newcomers can either call Cohen at 434-0663 or
simply show up for a meeting.
