Back in December I did a story about veterans inability to get to the VA Clinic if they must use a bus to get there: https://blnnews.com/2019/12/17/the-va-clinic-and-connect-transit/
Nothing has changed. Normal Trustee Stan Nord posted this video to Facebook explaining the problem. He even measured the path disabled veterans have to traverse to get from where the bus drops people off to the door. 697 feet!
Since the mission of the current Connect Transit Board is to make everybody ride the bus, not serve those who NEED the service, veterans are paying the price.
Hint Connect: People won’t be giving up their cars to ride a bus.
