YRT 242 shuttle bus need to run continuously
YRT 242 informed us this shuttle bus route covering old Richmond hill residential area will be discontinued by jun 30,2019.
Their reason is “resources allocation for high ridership routes “, which is absolutely non sense. Resources need to be rationalized, making more money from high ridership routes while maintaining service coverage and reachability to fulfill social responsibility of public service. You cannot be too much skewed towards profitability by sacrificing public services reachability!
We rely on this route to commute as a group instead of driving individually. We need service. And the environment also need this public service to reduce pollution. We should ease the life instead of making it difficult.
The same request has been addressed multiple times in the past with YRT through regional cities and MP. As residents in Richmond hill and tax payers, we raise our request to keep 242 route again this time!
Please refer to the petition link for the same issue in 2013 as follows.
