Our Bus Service

With regards to the bus, I am working for the needs of myself and the people of Casper and visitors of Casper.  

Communications should be public and in the news.  Mr. Moore is not a part of Casper, has no feel for what our City is about and does not comprehend what the peoples needs are.  I want to get a delegation of people together to work on this.  

The breaking apart of the bus service is terrible when it had been so successful.  In 2010 up through to before bus stops were dropped and the Yellow bus route completely torn apart, all six buses were close to 3/4 full.  

There is a study in your file somewhere around 2010 to 2012 that shows the high volume of people transported.  Many people took the bus to go to work.  All the stops were needed and buses did not stop unless people were there to get on. You devastated many people and some have moved out of Casper.  

The buses need to be kept ON TIME and not pulled off the routes to go elsewhere.  You need to put your vehicle away for one to two months and just use the bus to get around the city. Now there is a lax on instructing the bus drivers to tell people getting on to put the masks on when entering and keeping them on.  The bus is small quarters with little circulation of air.

Natrona County Fair

To the Newspapers: I would like to suggest picture spreads of events in & around the Casper area.

For example, public & news photos, updating new activity pictures – taken by the public & submitted by the public, as well as paper photographers. I would have loved a  photo spread of the fair.

Many Casperites have family/friends participating in the varied activities & would frequent those pages.

I would also like to suggest an ongoing section that tells where the food trucks are going to be.
