Consider bus changes carefully

I would like to voice my thoughts in the matter of the AATA/U-M alliance for bus service to the U-M community. I feel that this shift from U-M bus service to AATA would negatively affect the many students, staff and faculty who rely on the University’s dependable bus service. I see and hear about many AATA riders, waiting . . . waiting . . . waiting . . . for their bus to come and then have to continue to wait, because when it gets to them, it’s full, making people late everywhere they go!

I pay to park in the commuter lot so that I can have reliable (U-M) bus service. With the proposed change, will we be forced to pay for unreliable service? It appears that this change would benefit AATA more than those in the U-M community. Perhaps this needs more consideration.
