I am also a person that was terribly affected by the lack of transportation in the past. I live off the bus line and had to walk out (about 15-20 minutes) to catch the bus with my toddler on my back, take the bus to Juneau Christian Center for day care, wait another hour for the next bus and then do the same for the return trip. The worst thing for CBJ to do is to cut back service in the morning. It is more important for people to be able to get to work on time, and a little less worrisome to take a little longer getting home in the evening. At least that is for people who work regular hours. I have been on the bus lately where the whole bus was packed (one of the newer models - they are tiny in comparison) and there was standing room only. Can't something be figured out? Do a survey or something to see which buses are not being occupied.
