LETTER: Use head, hearts to solve mall bus issue

I am in total agreement regarding the sign instructing cars not to go around the bus.

Re: “Transit user unhappy with new bus stop,” and “Mall bus stop should revert to old location”

I am in total agreement regarding the sign instructing cars not to go around the bus, especially when one bus, say the #2 Fairview is at the stop. The sign is not visible to any approaching vehicles.

And I find that I am in complete agreement on all four of Jill Wilson’s well-thought out points. From all of the regular riders Ms. Wilson has overheard and/or talked to, plus mall office people, etc., it looks like Ms. Wilson has really done her homework on this important issue.

I ride both the #2 Fairview bus and the #10 North Shore bus, but the #2 bus more often. I hope that people at NelsonTransit, BC Transit and the Chahko Mika Mall owners etc., will put their heads and their hearts together on this issue and find a solution that works for everyone.
