How the hell is making the buses free until Monday fair to the paying customers of Halifax Transit? The folks that pay for their monthly pass, every month, without fail...
So now instead of sharing a cramped ride in a tin can with the regular passengers, we're going to have to share an even more cramped ride with people who want to ride the bus simply because they can and hey, it's free.
The transit system here is a total joke. From my experience on the buses, it's a pay-whatever-you-want service anyway. So many times I've seen people argue with the drivers after being caught dumping in way less than the $2.50, only to be allowed to ride anyway.
I know it's been said numerous times before by people on here, but I'm seriously considering investing in a vehicle. —Tired of Transit
