PROPERTY TAXES UP $28.00 FOR TRANSIT

"It means taxes will rise by 28 dollars this year on the average home in the capital region, for transit alone...and even at that, there are some minor service reductions".
"
Transit fares were raised last year, and the system's revenues fell short of projections by more than two million dollars".

I'm glad a midst raising fares, cutting service, and imposing a tax, BC transit's new management has managed them selves a hefty raise and gone on a hiring spree for upper and mid level management types (that then get endlessly shuffled around without clear duties).

Can we get rid of this management and just let the CRD or something run things? I'd love to see BC transit focused on efficient transit service rather than pretending they're a fortune 500 private corporation constantly launching useless pet projects that have nothing to do with moving people about the city with buses.
