Look harder for alternate B-Line route

Do they really have to have these B-Line buses operating every seven minutes?

Re: ‘Residents get the B-Line Blues,’ The Leader, Sept. 19.

I also live on 105 Avenue and this is a very annoying situation. There are lots of children in this area some of which get picked up by private bus companies for school and I can see this could be come a dangerous situation.

I am a courier driver and I have seen these buses all over Surrey on the designated routes and have never seen more than 10-12 people on these buses at any given time. I have seen this particular line in Newton, Whalley and Guildford, at all different times, going to or coming from the destinations and they are never, ever full.

Do they really have to have these B-Line buses operating every seven minutes? Although most drivers of these buses obey the speed limit, some do not and go down 105 Avenue well above the speed limit. This street is 95 per cent residential,  all homes except for the medical building which is extremely busy with its own traffic.

So if they are looking for alternate routes…look harder.
