I'm not sur if it's because it's the end of the month or if people are stocking up or what, but the busses seemed busier than usual today.

Probably making the most of the service before the city brings about its demise.

The new reduced schedules / trips should be out any day now.

The city claims it is because there are only 3 mechanics on duty.

Strange, because there were only 3 for the past several years and only NOW does the city claim there is a problem.

It's time for a protest outside city hall.

Wouldn't it shake things up if three perfectly qualified mechanics showed up at the garage calling somebody's bluff and volunteered their services. I'd donate a few bucks to the cause.

I saw the number some where but can't remember where.

Going from memory, I think that FT & PT totalled 86.

I stand corrected...some what..

http://atulocal1290.webs.com/

The City of Moncton and Codiac Transpo have cut 14 full time
positions and reduced service by more than 500 hours per week

Codiac transpo has been operating with 4 mechanics for the past 4 years and
operated at full capacity. Two short of the six they're stating that is needed to
run safely!!!! There have been repeated requests over the past two years for
the city to hire more mechanics, these request were denied until March 23, 2012.
 
As a result of 1 mechanic retiring they have now slashed over 500 hours of service
(14 of 55 full time positions) per week and would have you believe this is a result
of the current labour negotiations.....This is a failure to manage!
The city has stated that the retiring of one of its mechanics has led to these types
of service reductions for safety reasons....they cut 14 full time positions
(500+ hours of service per week).The city states they need six mechanics to
maintain a fleet of this size.
