Letter: C-Tran breaks good system

I had thought that C-Tran was finally getting a clue of what the riders need because they didn’t change the Burton route. But then I read where they are not going to have two buses traveling on 164th Avenue to Fisher’s Landing because of duplication of services. They are going to have two buses traveling on 192nd Avenue because they are rerouting the Camas/Washougal route to the stupid Mill Plain Vine terminal. Now those passengers will have to take an extra bus back to Fisher’s Landing if they want to go to Portland.

The planners still haven’t heard the saying if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The “C” in C-Tran still stands for clueless, but it also stands for you can’t get there from here anymore. They need to go back to public transportation and leave mass transportation for Greyhound and Amtrak.
