    I take route 252 which will be eliminated. That leaves the 57 (milk run) or walk either 10 minutes to Moodie for the revised 256 or Robertson for the new 68 to Baseline and transfer. I’ve never traveled to Baseline station to go to Tunney’s, it’s too long a trip, so this is out.

    Route 256. Stops will be added in Kanata south to compensate for the eliminated 252 but not in Bells Corners. Currently the 256 turns on to Old Richmond road in Kanata, which then becomes Moodie and on to highway 417. Currently the 256 has 7 runs in the AM and 7 in the PM, however the report fails to mention if there is an increase in “runs”, which of course there isn’t.

    On top of that when there is snow on the ground, some of the sidewalks that serve these stops on Moodie are never plowed in the winter.

    This will make for an interesting time when this is implemented. I’m willing to bet that 50% of the time the bus may be too full to stop, but I’ll have to wait and see, or use my car to get to work.

    Yet another report “for information.” So just what does the committee – and the council – do with this? This reads as the minutes of the decisions made rather than an information or decision report. So is the cart before the horse? Or the horse and cart not connected? “Reports for information” should be appended to committee and City Council agendas and “Received” by a blanket vote. And “Received” is the operative, legal term here. If they are actual action reports then they should be submitted “For Approval.” Sad that I have to suggest such elementary terminology.
