Re: “We need cheaper, better public transportation

I'm not sure who informed you of what the drivers make, but I'm a driver, and I work my tail off to provide a living for my family. We are not as you say, "very expensive". Many of us work overtime and second jobs in order to make ends meet. We are real people in your community that are working to provide a service, and it's pretty cheap as it is. In SLO, it's $1.50 for a ride, and you get a transfer. Monthly passes are cheaper. We provide services for college kids and the buses are packed, homeless folks going from day shelters to night shelters, and the buses are packed. It tails off in the evening, but there are still customers whose needs we meet. We have a pass that allows workers downtown to ride free to help alleviate congestion as well. There are discounts for seniors, and disabled folks, and our VIP passengers over 80 ride for free, so do small children. From someone who has been driving for over a year and half now, it's rewarding because you get to help people who need to be helped, but financially, it's not the most lucrative career. I love driving, I love people, and I love my community.

GLB,
Los Osos
