Make your voice heard on bus stop

I would like to applaud Frank Bucholtz’s column (“No service? No more cash,” The Leader, May 22) regarding the appalling state of transit in Surrey.

And specifically how Surrey has no access bus service over the Port Mann Bridge while buses to and from Langley zip past us.

This lack of planning by the City of Surrey, TransLink and the B.C. Ministry of Transport is appalling. The 156 Street underpass was constructed for the installation of a transit stop for North Surrey residents but nothing has been done so far. Ignoring the problem and feet dragging seems to be the order of business in B.C. when it comes to public transportation.

There have been numerous columns on this issue but the so-called leadership in our city and province have done nothing to address it. The only way to fix this issue is to have our voices heard.

I urge everyone who reads this column to whip out their phones and contact the City of Surrey at 604-591-4011 and let them know that you would like the bus stop installed for Surrey. Email the city manager at citymanager@surrey.ca and let him know that this is no way to run our beautiful city.

If the City of Surrey can’t be bothered to do something about it, then its up to us, the residents, to step up.
