Students and seniors need transit options

Mount Woodside residents would use transit if available to them, says letter writer

 

I have recently read your article about adding transit link to Seabird Island and so on. (Local transit to see more changes, Observer, May 24)

Well I have lived up at Mount Woodside for the last 22 years and have been on disability all this time. There were so many times I could have used a transit for appointments cause I struggle with driving at certain times.

There is a lot of seniors living at Mount Woodside who I know need this transit too, for some are not well enough to drive. During the time we have lived here our daughter went to University in Abbotsford for five years and my husband had to drive her most of the time which sure would have helped if there were a bus from here.

There are also other teens living up here that I know will soon have the same problem if this isn’t dealt with. I think it gives the children more incentive to do well if things are made easier which would be a transit link to Mount Woodside. Thank-you for reading my e-mail and please take this into consideration.

Thanks kindly,
