Local bus service

| Wednesday, April 10, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

I want to thank Helen Sadowski for her letter “We need public transportation” (April 4), about the need for bus service in Natrona and Brackenridge.

I've also seen the elderly and handicapped walk along Springhill Road in the winter. One man climbs that hill is an electric wheelchair.

I make it a point to pick these folks up when I see them.

The W.L. Roenigk Co.'s bus service has been a pillar in our community for decades. The Harrison Township commissioners, along with our elected state officials, should contact Roenigk to gauge the company's interest in providing this service.

I'd rather see my taxes subsidizing Roenigk than the Port Authority. The only thing the Port Authority does is cut service and demand more money.

The route could start at the Wal-Mart in Natrona Heights and go through Natrona and Brackenridge to the Pittsburgh Mills. I'd suggest running a small, less expensive bus.

It's time we start pestering our commissioners and state officials. If they can't help us, then they should try walking Springhill Road next winter.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
