Couple key points about the strike to keep in mind:
1. The busses will be back up “as soon as we can get them ready” according to Mayor Peter Kelly. This doen’t mean all services will start simultaneously. Be aware that for the first few days, there may be routes missing and major delays on routes that do run.
2. You can ride Metro Transit (busses & ferries) for free until March 31, 2012. (This is a nice way to mask the incoming rate hike.)
3. If you bought a February bus pass, it’s valid until the end of April, 2012.
All that said, I’ll be making a video soon explaining my thoughts on council, Mayor Kelly, and the ATU. I hope you’ll all watch, share, and respond.
