2$ Bus Fare?


On my FB page yesterday I asked if the $2 bus fares was working and are buses running between Souris and Charlottetown? Alas I did not receive any responses , so I’m writing this in the dark so to speak! However, I do have questions regarding this one price bus fare. I would think if a forty passenger bus left Souris full, it could hardly be enough money to pay the driver? A maximum of $80, can’t possibly pay the driver the fuel and operating costs. My next question, if I board the bus at St Peter’s Bay, or Morel  why should I pay the same as those who boarded in Souris? Somehow, I don’t think this system has been carefully thought out. It appears more a political way to get some exciting media coverage. Now with the silence surrounding this service one has to wonder what is really going on.  I think a more equitable system would be available bus passes. Senior rates could be available along with regular pricing for other passengers. I seriously doubt a $2 fare will or can last very long, what is needed is a solid bus service at a reasonable cost. One not run by a “for profit” company, but rather a provincial or county operation. If anyone using this service can enlighten me, it would be most appreciated.
God Bless and keep reading.
