Sorry Bus Full....
Monday, January 23, 20121 Comment
Recently, the City of Guelph instituted massive change in way transit service is delivered. According the Transit Growth Strategy (TGS) there has been a complete overhaul of the system. The planning committee responsible for designing these changes have introduced entirely new routes and a return to thirty minute service.
Unfortunately, these changes have been less than successful.
The University of Guelph contributes millions to the city for its transit services. The TGS is actually a service reduction in disguise. As many students have experienced in the last few weeks, the service is a failure.
When a bus passes you with 'Sorry Bus Full', you need to let the city know.
If there are 200 of you on the platform waiting for one bus (that holds 60)
and it comes and goes with 140 students still there, you need to let the city know.
When you no longer have a bus that comes within a close proximity of your
house, you need to let the city know.
If you feel there should be a stop near you, let the city know.
The planning committee is aware there are problems and they need your input. Make your voices heard.
Write your CSA, City Councilors, City Hall, and Transit Management. Tell them how you feel about being left in the cold. Keep track of who you speak with and ask for a response. Demand solutions.
You can make a difference.
