Letter: Leave C-Tran routes as they are

Once again C-Tran is showing that they are clueless. I guess they haven’t heard that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Now they want to have the Burton bus end up where the Mill Plain Vine terminus will be. That will add a half-hour of travel time for riders wanting to continue on 164th Avenue to Fisher’s Landing. Plus the riders coming from Camas, Washougal and Portland will have to take an extra bus to continue their journey. The buses that travel down 164th and 192nd avenues will only run every half-hour.

If there are already two wheelchair passengers on the bus, then people with mobility devices will have to wait another half-hour for the next bus and hope that one doesn’t have wheelchairs on it.

C-Tran, please don’t make anymore changes to the routes. Keep the Mill Plain route as it is and add the Fourth Plain stops back.
