Malahat bus worth trying


I would definitely like to see a rail commuter service in Victoria, but I don’t think a bus service over the Malahat is a bad idea.

The rail service can’t be implemente­d immediatel­y because of a needed upgrade to the railbed. I took a short walk on the rail line a few weeks ago and was astonished as to how serious the problem is.

The implementa­tion of an express bus service will give some indication of how much a transporta­tion system is needed.

It’s going to cost some money for the new buses, but all the other infrastruc­ture is there and they can be used elsewhere if the run is cancelled. Richard White Shawnigan Lake
