How would you improve OC Transpo?

How would you improve OC Transpo? That's one of the topics of discussion at LiveJournal's OC Transpo community. Some suggestions so far:

  • Implement a Global Positioning System
  • Singing bus drivers
  • Buses that run all night
  • Make the buses go to Carp

    Have OC Transpo run regular hours on weekends and holidays as many people work regardless of the day.

    1. Increase bus frequencies for Route 171, 71 and 170.

    2. Pl. advise your bus drivers to wait for 1 extra minute to pick up the passengers from the connecting buses, especially when they see a bus behind them or when they are being honked by the bus driver behind them. This will save waiting time of 20 mins to 30 mins for getting on the next bus.

    3. Be thoughtful and considerate, when you increase your fares every year. Not everyone can efford, especially when one does not have a job and is going for job searches and interviews.

    4. Request to reduce the bus fares for Express buses, so that average income person can afford to buy express pass and commute by it.

    Note: Most of the express bus passengers are commuting long distance by standing. Insufficient seats and bus frequency??
