LETTER: New mall bus stop poses hazards

We object to locating the city bus stop at the outer edge of the mall parking lot by the fence of the garden centre.

We object to locating the city bus stop at the outer edge of the mall parking lot by the fence of the garden centre.

The curbs and uneven area for walking, getting on or off the bus there pose a hazard for transit users and the hazardgreatly increases with winter conditions and is even more difficult for those with mobility issues or those pushing strollers.

The bus stop is as far as it can possibly be from Save-On-Foods, adding further inconvenience for transit users. Transitusers do shop locally. It seems that sometimes we are regarded as of lesser importance than others.

If the bus drivers feel it is unsafe to drive through the mall parking lot, perhaps they could drive through behind the mall tothe entrance at the centre of the mall and a bus stop could be located there.

Wendy and Barry Nelson, Nelson
