Fix the Welland/Brock Bus
At the beginning of the 2010/2011 school year the schedule for the Welland/St Catharines connection bus has been cut back drastically for Brock University students. Previously, there was an agreement in which Niagara College and Brock jointly funded a bus for both schools student population.
This year Niagara wanted to improve the schedule for their students. Neither Brock and/or Welland Transit has supplied extra funding to this service for students. The old funding method left only enough money for half of the buses to run to and from Brock University. Instead of 16 scheduled buses, this year there are 8 buses running per day.
For the many Brock students in Welland this is a huge inconvenience. Not only does it effect waiting times but it is also an issue for students who work around their school schedule. Staying at Brock for an extra 4 hours isn't an option for those who need to work after class to pay tuition.
This petition is to get the hourly bus schedule back. Please sign and show your support.
