By AmbrÖse Bierce. The reason people do not take the bus in Abbotsford is because the service sucks and the fare is too much. Try cutting the fare price and having reliable service and it will work.
People will abandon their cars if the alternative works.
If I got to vote, I would put in the service to Langley and not worry about if they paid their share.
Vince needs to get on the Aldergrove bus, the bus is almost always full and the inner city buses will also be full if it is value and works.
People shop for 3 reasons, price, quality and service.
Maybe the price is too high, the service sucks and (former Mayor) Mary Reeves took out all the pay phones and bus shelters.
AmbrÖse Bierce is Today’s writer in residence who occasionally gives voice to the concerns of individual citizens and taxpayers who, for a variety of reasons, are unable or unwilling to take a public stand on issues of relevance to the rest of the community. Reasons may include possible loss of job, injury to their business, or any number of quite legitimate reasons to keep their mouths shut.
While all columns and letters on Today are signed by their authors, we have decided to provide this venue for those with legitimate opinions, based on fact, with something to contribute to the public debate in the city. This is not a place for wild venting or personal attacks. AmbrÖse requires you identify yourself to him and explain why you need to keep your identity secure.
