The new town “richies” who apparently now run Laguna hardly need a year-round city transit system. Many of them have never set foot on a public bus and never will. Former City Manager Ken Frank would have loved to get rid of the blue and white buses, subsidized by hundreds of thousands from Orange County Transit Authority and the present city manager’s reference to them at the meeting of the “clique” who runs the city, the so-called Conservancy is scary.
Yes, we do have low-income citizens, believe it or not, who use our bus system and students, Lagunatics, visitors and others who want to get to “higher ground” on the north side, Top of the World, Bluebird Canyon and Arch Beach Heights and some who love the system because it stops mere feet from CVS, Albertson’s and South Laguna’s Mission Hospital.
If you love the blue and white buses and or believe they are a vital city service, you should contact your favorite city council member to remind them that we don’t want to loose them for this city manager or any other short thinking person.
