I hate the Nanaimo transit system.
Frequently, the buses arrive 5 minutes late and there were a couple times when buses leave too early (one time a bus left a stop 8 minutes earlier). They try to encourage people to be more environmentally friendly by taking transit but the bus system just makes it so frustrating to get to a destination that it makes me feel like I want to take a car everywhere.
One thing that I really don't like about the bus system is that some popular routes are not covered such as Rutherford Road and Turner Road, and there are many residential homes, senior homes and an elementary school in the area so it would make sense if there was a regular bus route in that area but there isn't. In fact, there is no bus that goes up or down Turner Road, and there is one bus that goes through Rutherford but that's only once early in the morning and once in the evening.
Plus, I hate the new schedule that they are coming up with for March 2012. I love the fact that there would be weekend service for 15 VIU Connector, but some of the route changes make it even more difficult for people to get to places. I also really hate how they'll be hitching up the fare prices for these new schedules and routes. Some of us are students or part-time employees that rely on the bus to get to places.
