LETTERS: No benefit to bus Wi-Fi
Re: Three buses equipped with Wi-Fi, Aug. 19
So, now we have to put up with possibly more addictive behaviour on public transit.
It is shocking to me to see Translink feeding into the over-use of already problem-causing devices.
I have been witness to altercations involving these gadgets escalating into near chaos. Not a very pleasant experience in a confined space.
Transit is a means of getting from point A to B in as peaceful and uneventful a fashion as possible. We do not need entertaining by Translink (improve the customer experience on transit).
Years ago, we got a ban on smoking on public transit. Who knows for sure if Wi-Fi isn’t even more detrimental to our health, and sanity?
Why the 351 White Rock to Bridgeport as a trial run? Why spoil one of the most pleasant rides in the Lower Mainland?
