Transit green pitch requires better bus frequency

I noticed an ad for B.C. Transit suggesting that I “go green” and use the bus system. However, buses are infrequent, unreliable and unavailable in many parts of Greater Victoria.

In addition, reducing transfer use to 60 minutes for one direction from 90 minutes in any direction, makes this essential service, which is paid for by our taxes, even more expensive – hardly an incentive to “go green.”
