MWTS staff 2013

Top marks for transit team

Tribute from regular rider to the Mount Waddington Transit System staff.

Dear editor,

I just wanted to send a note to acknowledge the great service I have had using the Mount Waddington Transit System for the last two years for commuting daily between Port Hardy and Port McNeill for work.  I found the MWTS to be a safe, reliable, and efficient means for me to commute between my home in Port Hardy and my work in Port McNeill, was always on time, and very affordable.  I also have to commend the drivers as well, particularly the regular drivers on my commute, Earl and Alan, who I always found to be friendly and courteous and very safety conscious and made the bus ride an enjoyable start and end to each work day.

I am moving from the North Island in December and felt I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge, before I left, the great service the MWTS provides.  The North Island is very fortunate to have such a great service.  Keep up the great work.
