Unread post by Taco Guapo 2020 » Thu Feb 22, 2018 5:05 pm

Boy does tally's bus system succ, any one up to helping me fix it so the poor dude in the wheelchair dosnt have to wait in the rain ever again due to overcrowding and not to forget having scheaduals that can flex 10 minutes either way and not serving cruicial area's of town. Ive made a few maps my self but i wanna see what other people think would help improve the current system that is sooooooo bad right now.

You can thank many of our current commissioners for the bus disaster that exists today. Gillum, Ziffer and Miller to name a few, all of whom voted in favor of NOVA 2010 despite countless concerns raised by then bus riders. Start with emailing those 3 and the Commission as a whole. One of 2 things will be required to improve the bus system, a fare increase or an appropriation from the Commission. Either way, it requires money and the bus system in this town has never been a priority. I rode the bus from 94-15 and will never go back. Challenge the Commissioners to ride the bus, to do a full week's worth of groceries in September on a day when it's raining where they have to buy a gallon of milk, laundry detergent and other heavy items. I doubt you'll get a single volunteer.

we charge about 0.25$ less than most bus systems so i think if we needed to raise the fares it wouldnt be all that that bad.... I just want to hear everyone elses ideas and get something to maybe show the commisioners.
