Transfers bad business

Stratford Gazette

The city’s new policy of extending the use of bus transfers to one hour has saved me at least $20 so far, which I appreciate.

However, I’ve heard conversation on the bus indicating confusion about whether you can use the transfer to get back on the same bus you got it from and whether the hour mean from the exact time it was issued or from the time the bus reaches city hall.

Obviously if the hour begins when the thing pops up then you’ve really only got half an hour to do things downtown. The transfer will expire before the hour-later buses pull in. I’ve tried it.

As for getting back on the same bus, a transfer is just that – meaning you use it go from one bus to another. Using the transfer to return home on the same bus is great for poor people but the city is losing money allowing that.

Of course the loss might be offset by increased ridership but in any case it’s minor when compared to the lost revenue if and when the 72 Market Square parking meters get removed.
