Pity the bus stops

From 76 to 88 Avenues, on both sides of the King George, there are houses and residential areas and there is no bus stop.

I would like to bring attention to the route of the 96 B-line. This is good news for transit users that finally a B-line is here in Surrey.

The original route was to run from King George SkyTrain station to White Rock. But this route is shorter and was altered without any consultation or feedback.

Still, it is okay. My particular points are the bus stops on King George Boulevard. From Newton Exchange, the first stop is 76 Avenue. The next stop is 88 Avenue.

This is not fair. From 76 to 88 Avenues, on both sides of the King George, there are houses and residential areas and there is no bus stop.

I would like to request the transit authority reconsider its decision and add at least one more stop at 80 Avenue. This area is congested with residential houses on both sides.

At 104 Avenue, bus stops are every four blocks. At King George, every eight blocks.

But from 76 to 88 Avenues there are 12 blocks and no bus stop.

Please consider adding a stop at 80 Avenue. I hope TransLink authorities will solve this problem and give access to more riders.
