How many of you are taking bus to the school every day since the school district cut the school bus? Due to the economic hard times, AC Transit is facing a serious $57 million deficit next year. The result: service cuts and price hikes in the AC Transit starting in July.
A lot of people might feel upset about the decision since they rely on the bus every day for going to work, school, see a doctor, etc. Therefore, a series of workshops will be open to let bus riders and others concerned to discuss the coming changes and offer suggestions on what AC Transit should do about the budget cuts.
If anyone who needs Spanish, Cantonese or Mandarin translators, you can call the toll free number, (510) 891-7246, at least three days before the meeting to request one. AC Transit says its goal for these meetings is to make sure they can do their best to satisfy what the bus riders want.
Let your voice to be heard; join this meeting and express your thoughts. Maybe your opinion can change AC Transit's decision.
