Re: Music to a bus singer's ears (July 11). If Winnipeg Transit had a modern, businesslike public relations strategy whereby the public, via surveys and opinion polls, would be partners in the operation (instead of being managed by a paternalistic transit ideology), there would likely be no need for more than a handful of transit bylaws.
Shouldn't a transit system be something around which we can all rally, drawing on each other for self-policing and generating mutual respect for each other?
A public bus service under such conditions could be far more than this -- it could anchor an entire community.
City councillors and transit authorities in charge of drawing up bylaws need a real public relations strategy.
