Several weeks ago you had an article in the paper about Mayor Westbroek’s suggestion that the short bus routes around Qualicum Beach should only charge $1 a trip.
At Knox United’s Green Team meeting, we decided we really wanted to support this idea. We had already suggested to our congregation that they use the new buses around Qualicum Beach and Parksville for the sake of the environment. More than 30 of the bus schedules we offered were taken. So there is definitely an interest. But should a 10-minute ride cost $2.50? I could go all the way to Nanaimo for that price.
We have been told that a report on this issue will be presented to the RDN Transit Select Committee on May 24. Anyone who supports this idea should let them know. Contact your RDN representative or email or phone the committee and take the bus!
