West Shore transit needs improvement

I agree with Donna Mollin’s letter “Transit in Langford poor for seniors.” Not only is it poor for seniors, it’s poor for everyone including those with small children like myself.

I find it very difficult to stand at the bus stop for more than an hour waiting for a bus, particularly when it’s raining or windy. I also don’t feel safe.

Having only one car in my family, sometimes I am forced to find other ways of transportation. I wish that BC Transit would consider making better routes and more frequent routes on the West Shore.

We are currently living in Langford in the Florence Lake area and are waiting for changes to happen.

My husband is currently doing his masters degree at the University of Victoria and it takes him more than an hour and 15 minutes just to get there on the bus.

For him, that means waking up an hour earlier and leaving the house at odd hours and not being able to say goodbye to his family.

I would also like a study done as Mollin points out.
