A coworker of mine who has limited vision has been using the buses up until recently, rather than paratransit. He says he's so unhappy with the new system, and the extra time it's taking him to get anywhere, he's switching back to paratransit. part of his complaints are the same as yours Lynn: longer transit times, due in part to much more walking to get to stops; and waiting for buses now at stops which have no protection from the sun or the weather.

I should have stayed of the bus today and road out the rain storm. I took a soaking. My route to the YMCA on the new route takes me an hour or more and this comes with two transfers and three busses The old route took me 50 minutes, one transfer and two busses. Will people still want to pay for this after the free fare week ends Friday? Thursday was much better. I went to the bus plaza for more bus passes. Then went north to Raymond Deal for some banking. I left home at 10:30 and got back home at 12:30. I had to do quite a bit of walking on Thomasville Road and Raymond Deal. Anyone else care to vent, I mean share their experiences.
