Buses necessary at Easter

NANAIMO – Public transit not available to tax-paying public on long weekend.

To the Editor,

If one needs to understand the state of ‘civil service’ these days, one does not have to look any further than the bonehead move to not provide public transit on Good Friday.

Yes, it is great for transit workers that the bus system takes a day off, but it leaves those who use the system with only an expensive alternative.

I have my suspicions as to why this happened and do not accept any reason for it.

It is a public transit system and when someone makes decisions that do not serve the public’s needs, then they cease to be civil servants.

I pay taxes for the use and expect service in return and no buses on Good Friday is in no way serving my needs.
