Re: “Pity the bus stops,” Letters, The Leader, Aug. 27.
The only part of the new 96 B-Line route that was altered was dropping the White Rock portion. TransLink claims it doesn’t have the money to run the full route at this time.
As for the stops along King George Boulevard, these were selected as they are transfer points to other bus routes. Not all the stops along King George Boulevard are designed for the 60-foot bus.
Maybe stops will be added in the future, but I would prefer to see the extension to White Rock or at least the South Surrey park-and-ride first. That should be the priority.
