Rub shoulders with the bus riders

It is wonderful to see that B.C. Transit is happy with their service on the Peninsula, unfortunately many of the users on the Peninsula are not. They do admit there airport service is a bit short of utilization, maybe if they had a run to the airport so one could get an early flight out the use would go up. The run is so infrequent a slow walker can make several walks between the airport and the McTavish exchange, hardly worth using.

A community bus looping between the airport and along Barret Drive in Dean Park would help many (not that that particular one would help me, but it would help others).

They could improve the 70/72 service on the Peninsula considerably if they added one or two stops along the highway in Central Saanich. It’s a long walk between the McTavish Exchange and Sayward Road.

Is there money in the system? Looking at the recent growth in the management empire, couldn’t they lay off a couple of managers and tell the rest to get out of their cars and ride the bus more often? That way they could rub shoulders with the people and learn what they want.
