I would like to see the buses run for longer hours on the weekdays and on Saturdays. I’ve lived in Lewiston for over 40 years. I now live in senior housing, and just about everyone I talked to about this would like to have better bus routes and a stop near where we live.
A good place for the bus to stop would be at the corner of Bates and Birch streets. Option C would make these changes happen.
We have three big buildings around this corner, all filled with senior residents. Some of us drive cars, but many of us don’t. I haven’t driven a car for many years. I rely on the bus to do everything, like get groceries and visit the doctor or drug store for medicine.
I hope the council thinks about us and supports Option C.
