Bus transfer restrictions dig into seniors’ pockets

B.C. Transit transfers seniors

The changes to the bus transfers are mean and petty, especially where fixed-income seniors are concerned.

One-way only travel makes no sense. What does it matter to transit which way passengers travel on the transfer, especially as buses can often travel almost empty? We seniors, who no longer drive, ride the bus, often just on a single errand, so a return on a transfer would not cost the authority, unless the latest move is indeed a transit cash grab.

The reduction in time is unkind to those of us who are not as quick as before. This move merely added insult to the one-way travel injury.
