Letter to the Editor: Bus stops can be dangerous after storms

Leigh Holgate
Truckee

If you take public transit in this area, I don’t need to tell you the danger you are in. An unplowed bus stop leaves you nowhere to run and you can’t possibly climb up that snowbank fast enough to avoid a sliding tourist or a snowplow.

If you are a motorist who wants to park the gas guzzler, one look at that same bus stop will quickly change your mind.

So what constitutes a properly plowed bus stop? One that provides plenty of room for the bus and the passengers to be safely off the road.

I want to thank all the unknown equipment operators who plowed out some of the most dangerous stops on the west shore last week. You are saving lives.

You don’t have to live like this. If you see an unplowed bus stop, please call TART at 1-800-736-6365 or (530) 550-1212.

Please call. Lives are in danger, still.
