Former head soph speaks up

Things to do before the winter sets in

The lost souls of Wonderland

The lost souls of Wonderland

To the Editor:

I would like to speak out on behalf of all those unfortunate students who must take the 10-Wonderland bus to and from Western every day.

The 10-Wonderland comes every half hour, whereas other buses, such as the 2-Dundas, seem to come every three minutes.

I have lived on the Dundas route before and I know it's a high-demand bus, but each time I take the Wonderland, it is more packed than the last.

Quite often, two Dundas buses arrive together at Natural Science and both leave almost empty. The demand for the Wonderland route is there.

Please don't compare that bus' demand to the anemic demand for the Proudfoot. It's bad enough the bus comes every half an hour, but to make matters worse, it arrives at Natural Science one minute past the hour, and then at 31 minutes past the hour.

One either must be late for class or wait half an hour before class begins. London Transit might consider taking a few buses off its precious Dundas and Richmond routes in order to save the lost souls of Wonderland Road.

And maybe the guy who writes up the bus schedules might consider the people who are going to Natural Science are students. You know, people who have class that starts at the top of the hour?

I hope some change can be made before we all have to spend winter mornings waiting at 7:20 a.m. for a bus to take us to 8 a.m. classes.
