Bendy buses do not an efficient transit authority make (Big-city feel to bendy bus, Jan. 14).

Our transit organizers would have us believe the Blue Bombers home-opener fiasco -- at least where public transportation was concerned -- was due to the absence of such buses.

Wrong: The reason for the organized chaos on that day was the same reason as that which consistently plagues the entire transit operation -- namely, the absence of a public-relations strategy.

Until those who pay are given a say, we will never see in this town a welcome, suitable transport option, no matter how many millions of tax dollars are sunk into upgrading the system.
