So read a story in the Ottawa Sun where Gloucester-South Nepean councillor Steve Desroches agreed with Harder.
"I'm telling people not to take the bus until full service is returned," said Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder. "I am telling people not to take it unless they need to."
Harder said with the incremental roll out of buses over the next 10 weeks, riders aren't going to know when or where buses are going to be available.
"It's going to be chaos," she said.Harder is recommending residents stay in their vehicles or continue carpooling.
"I won't dissuade them from that," he said.What do readers think of Harder and Desroches' message to commuters?
Sun reporter Derek Puddicombe also wrote about the return of commuters to the now-running O-Train. People are back on the rails, he reported:
During a briefing at yesterday's transit committee meeting, OC Transpo general manager Alain Mercier told councillors there has been a "healthy return" of riders to the O-Train since it started running Monday.
On the first day back, the O-Train carried 4,600 passengers and another 5,500 passengers Tuesday.
On an average day, it carries 9,000 passengers.
Whether or not O-Train ridership continues to rise as the days and weeks progress will be interesting to watch.
