Kudos: I love the new bus schedule (opinion)
Not only is it much more convenient, it actually is relieving stress for me, to know that if I miss one bus I only have a 20-minute wait for the next one, instead of an entire hour the way it used to be.
I live in Tahoe Senior Plaza, and we are extremely well served by the new schedule with a bus coming by every 20 minutes. So I’m applauding this change and only wonder why you don’t get more information out to people in the city about what an improvement this is.
Only criticism I have is that it starts too late and ends too early. I hardly ever go out at night, but for those who work and do spend time out at night, having the bus stop running at 8 p.m. is not the greatest; perhaps the Transit District could expand on demand service to a kind of group taxi for people who need rides in those hours.
Only thing wrong is more people should be riding the bus now that the schedule has improved, so please do some kind of public relations-public information campaign to let people know about the improvements.
Thanks for making things better.
