Terminal a waste

In this time of fiscal restrain, the idea of spending $805,000 on a fancy transit terminal is ridiculous. It will not increase transit use. More buses and new or extended routes would be more appropriate. There are several areas begging for bus service.

The cenotaph location has been previous used but failed. Bus passengers were so intimidated by drug users, alcoholics and hookers that security personnel were needed on site. Also, the terminal structures were continuously vandalized.

I have lived on Mission Hill for over 50 years and have used the transit system since its inception. We have the best bus drivers in B.C. They are courteous, cheerful and go out of their way to assist their passengers. I hope the transit committee will use its common sense and invest in more buses and bus routes.
