    Why are the intoxicated people allowed to ride transit? Many Passengers stopped riding transit because of unsafe environment, vulgar language, vomit and urination in the buses. Other cities don’t allow them with strong transit police presence. Your inspectors are a joke. They are never there on time when needed. Troublemakers know that drivers can’t enforce the fare, so they ride for free and cause trouble. Looks like transit is made for the intoxicated people only. Because of them, the buses are running around empty!

    First off, we apologize for your experience while riding public transit.  The public’s safety is a top priority for us, unfortunately situations such as this are fairly common on public transit across Canada. 

    Transit has in the past and continues to work with our social profit networks, Bylaw and the RCMP to enhance safety for transit passengers.  We are all collectively working to focus on passengers’ safety at our bus stops and terminals.

    These instances of public intoxication and abuse are reported through to the appropriate individuals and responded to as quickly as possible by the agencies involved. Our goal is to do this in the most respectful way to all involved. 

    While transit doesn’t condone public intoxication or abuse of the ridership in any way, please remember public transit is also a safe alternative to drinking and driving.

    We are actively and continually looking at options to address public safety concerns.  These options have included reviews of other transit agencies for best practices.

    Thank you for contacting us about this issue, your safety matters to us.  If you continue to notice these issues, please report them to your driver for immediate action, then please contact Pulse to report your concerns.  Pulse@rmwb.ca or 780-743-7000.

    When will the new routes take affect?

    Anonymous asked 12 months ago

    The routing is designed to take place over a period of 5 years as it tries to strike a balance between existing system and our current requirements while introducing new services to various parts of the region, such as on-demand transit. 

     

    The phasing of the routes changes will be outlined in the final plan once all routing has been finalized as that is a key to determine the future of transit and the timing of any changes.

    What is RMWB’s plan to make busses and shelters safer from intoxicated passengers on busses and shelters? Passengers won’t even go in shelter at main when it’s cold because of all the intoxicated passengers. Does RMWB plan on hiring transit security?

    Henry asked over 1 year ago
    We are working with social agencies to work on the situation and law enforcement to make transit safe for all.
