Letter: Service from C-Tran is exceptional



I take exception to the opinion of Mike Yancey’s July 2 letter, “Service is failing its riders.” He complains that C-Tran reduces services and increases fares. As a newcomer to Vancouver’s bus system, I am amazed at C-Tran’s special services, i.e., space and courteous driver-assistance for wheelchair-bound and bicycle-riding passengers. Additionally, I am enriched by real savings when C-Tran buses transport me all over Vancouver, and beyond, for example, to Portland, Washougal and Camas.

Imagine this: a senior citizen can ride all day, every day of the month for the price of an ID pass costing $27.
