Re: “AC Transit GM Quits

This is really an OUTRAGE!! The agency hasn't worked this well since I moved here in 1998. Expanded service, new buses MADE IN THE USA, Hayward, as a matter of fact.
I thought hydrogen fuel cells were a good idea originally, but it takes too much infrastructure for an agency the size of AC. They continually run initiatives asking for more money with threats of reduced service. After being blackmailed into voting for them, we get reduced service anyway.

A couple of years ago, the customer service call center was moved to the midwest somewhere because we were told, it would save money. Well, it didn't, a bunch of local folks lost their jobs, and now the attitude at the call center is as snippy and depressed as everyone else who works for the agency.
Peeples doesn't care about drivers OR, apparently, riders either. HE NEEDS TO BE IMPEACHED!! East Bay voters, PAY ATTENTION when your district rep is up for election. (yes, you and I VOTE for these guys, rather than someone who knows about these things appointing them). I'd run myself except that my rep, Greg Harper is the only reasonable guy on the board. Watch your back, Greg. You might get Peeples on it...

Re: “AC Transit Made Right Choice to Finally Buy Local

And yet, those of us who had to ride the buses from HOOL, every DAY!! knew right away how bad they were. I didn't think I'd live long enough to see a change but here I am.

BTW, I think Harper's mind was changed by his MOTHER who HATED the Van Hells as much as I did. GO MAMA!! We ALWAYS know best!

Re: “Fighting for Justice Against AC Transit

Okay, listen up!!! We just missed an opportunity to replace rubber-stamp, in-bed-with board members with new voices and minds. Next time -- VOTE OUT THE INCUMBENTS!! TELL EVERYONE!! PEOPLE WHO DON'T RIDE BUSES DON'T KNOW WHAT WE KNOW!!!
