My suggestion is to fund community care so that they could buy additional buses and collect people based on the needs of those requiring transportation. This funding would include paying the bus drivers.
We posed this question to our provincial all candidates meeting and there was some support. I have also spoken with Linda McCurr who leads community care in our area and her only concern was who would organize it.
For ourselves and North Kawartha this makes sense as we are far too spread out for a regular bus route to be of any use. Our ageing population could be kept in their homes longer if proper affordable transportation was available.
