The Lane Transit District, which purports to offer bus service to residents as an alternative to automobile use, is doing the exact opposite. The district has announced that in the Fall of 2018 it plans to cut back on bus service in many areas.

For example, LTD plans to curtail or strictly limit bus service on the No. 41 Route in the afternoon hours. This will cause a major hardship for seniors and others who depend on the bus for transportation.

The mayor and Eugene City Council must look into the total mismanagement of LTD.

Residents have only until June 20 to comment on the ill-advised changes.
