So I get home Saturday to find a letter on my door stating that Metro Transit wants to move the Lacewood Bus Terminal. It seems "the existing Lacewood Terminal on Willet Street can no longer accommodate the increasing needs of HRM residents in the area".
First of all, I haven't noticed any overcrowding at this terminal. There are usually more people waiting for the bus at Wal-mart in Bayer's Lake than at Lacewood.
Second of all, I live 3 minutes from this terminal and use it to get to work and all points within the city. Moving it away would seriously fuck me over. It's present location, at the center of Clayton Park by the shopping area, is ideal for commuters who do their banking, grocery shopping, and whatever else here. Not to mention it's close to Timmies so I can grab a coffee and then be at the bus stop in 2 mins.
The only other suitable location I can think of would be in the parking lot of the shopping plaza and I don't know if that would be possible.
Bottom line, leave our Bus Terminal alone! Meeting Monday night at Halifax West to discuss this foolishness.
