Asheville Transit SystemAsheville Redefines Transit – Asheville's Bus System has been renamed, as was pointed out earlier by a previous editor. It is now completely revamped and called "Asheville Redefines Transit". Please visit the city's bus page (http://www.ashevillenc.gov/Departments/Transit.aspx) to verify this. Relisted.

  • Oppose: This seems like a change of WP:OFFICIALNAME without a change of WP:COMMONNAME. I doubt the average person will ever refer to this system as "Asheville Redefines Transit", and no evidence for common use has been identified. —BarrelProof (talk) 00:56, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
    • It is no longer referred to as "Asheville Transit System", whether in an official or common sense. Please visit the web site to verify this. 96.37.27.141 (talk) 01:33, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
      • I don't see any mention on that web site of what is the term people commonly use, and that government-operated site is strictly an official source of information, so it would only be useful as a reference for official usage. —BarrelProof (talk) 02:48, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Excuse me, but that link is part of the same government (i.e., official) web site, so of course they're going to use the new official name. I wonder whether you're just looking for any sites or only those that support your move request. Take a look at the relevant Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Asheville-Transit-System/78579725102, which refers to "Asheville Transit System" and does not even mention the new official name, the page http://www.nctransit.org/applications/MemberDirectoryManager/inc_memberdirectorymanager.asp?EntityID=9&CategoryID=141 which uses "Asheville Transit System", the site http://www.ashevillenc.com/area_info/public_transportation, which refers to the "Asheville Transit Authority", and the UNCA site http://publicsafety.unca.edu/parking/transit, which refers simply to "Asheville Transit". It seems hard to find anyone completely unconnected to the government that has adopted the "Asheville Redefines Transit" name (which strikes me as a non-neutral name probably chosen by some sort of PR contractor). —BarrelProof (talk) 15:46, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
AB Tech's web page is an educational web page, not a government web site. And with all due respect, Facebook... :S Here is another link using "ART" (Asheville Redefines Transit) in a local newspaper: http://www.mountainx.com/article/42550/Asheville-Redefines-Transit-public-meetings-underway 96.37.27.141 (talk) 16:30, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
