I am a resident of Wendell and travel daily to Wilson with my wife to our job. I have had the opportunity to see the bus in Wendell and in Zebulon many times with one or two passengers. After reading the article on the Eastern Wake News about the bus, I am offering my opinion and suggestion.
To me, the bus is too big for the amount of people that it carries; it uses a lot of diesel and together with the chauffer's salary it is a waste of tax payers money. A better solution could be to discontinue the use of those large buses and use instead 12 passenger vans, more gas efficient, easier to maneuver and cost efficient.
I think the service should continue, but it should be modified.
