Re: Only some voices heard, Sept. 22 letters.

I read with interest the letter regarding the number of buses that race up and down Thrift Avenue.

In Crescent Beach, we have an identical problem. With 61 scheduled 351 buses and numerous “not in service” buses in the area, we have close to 100 buses steaming through the beach area daily.

Our roads are narrow and our village quite pedestrian, most certainly not a suitable spot for highway diesel buses.

The buses are almost always empty and almost always breaking the 30 km/h speed limit.

TransLink takes complaints but seems incapable of understanding the facts and making change.

I am in total agreement with letter-writer Karen Lanier when she states the need for smaller buses to take riders to the larger buses bound for Vancouver.

It seems like such an obvious direction to take. I wonder why TransLink cannot see the way.
