I don't agree with Councillor McHattie's postition on increasing bus fares.I think council needs to study this fully and find money from some other source to keep bus fares at their current rate.Many seniors live on fixed incomes and having a reasonably priced bus pass allows them to get around the city for shopping (hitting the stores with the best bargains), medical appointments and socializing.If the price for this pass is increased some may not be able to afford the bus pass and we will see other costs go up as they will need more help to get to places they need to go.They may forego things such as exercise programs and then become more dependent on the health care system.This needs more work.
