Petition over Cornwall Transit’s December changes

CORNWALL – It didn’t take long for some people to voice their displeasure with changes to some Cornwall Transit routes in the city.

City council will receive a petition tonight (Monday) from resident Maureen Dunn.

She argues the changes force people to walk further to get to the bus stops and the changes weren’t tested to take safety and accessibility into account.

“You are making these changes at the expense of poor people,” the petition reads. “Who thought December was a good time to add misery and hardship to people’s lives? Where is the humanity?”

It’s not known how many people signed the petition because the city has redacted that portion for privacy reasons, but the signatures only take up two-thirds of a piece of paper.

In December, the city made changes to four routes, eliminating some stops.
