It's an extremely surprising move, but thank goodness for it. 5% annual increases are unsustainable when salaries are increasing at less than half that rate and the cost of driving a car has actually decreased over the past two years.
I saw an article about how Bruce was saying it was unlikely to be a fare increase next year, period.There was a happy dance about this. I really couldn't see them doing an increase after not just the boondoggle of a summer, but the damning Auditor General's report. Pitchforks and torches were where it was heading. Not that it would have made a difference.
I am shocked.I don't think they take any responsibility for the summer fiasco or any of the AG comments though. But it's a nice early Christmas gift.(Fingers crossed they don't double up next time to make up for it!)
