Local bus service

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.
