Connect Transit has 5 small buses people can schedule to use at a higher cost.
How often are these 5 buses used? PDF page 11: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1CbmR9DiMsXr6XQ1U_8AaLtGKH9yGbh_x/view
The 5 buses average 3 boarding per hour. That means a large percentage of the time the 5 buses are doing nothing, especially at night when they aren’t transporting people to appointments. Mobility, according to their website, operates during the same hours as the fixed route buses.
So what do the driver’s do when they don’t have anyone to transport? According to the reader who sent this pic, park and play on a phone. The reader sees this bus parked frequently.
Here’s an idea:
Take a couple huge empty buses off the roads and use the small ones instead!
This is why the Transit Board needs all new representatives – no common sense exists now. Of course the current members were appointed by both mayors and it’s why Koos refuses to appoint Marc Tiritilli. Common sense isn’t allowed.
