It is official: I saw two buses on Ottawa roads today. One of them was my beloved 5.
But its not all puppies in baskets and roses without thorns. No sir.
Sure, buses returned today, I'll be riding free until the end of March, but not everyone is so lucky. Yes, my three main routes have all come back in full swing, but the strike is far from over from some people. As per the OC Transpo website:
Full service on all routes is expected to be in place by Monday April 6.
Two months. Some people can ride their buses today, 59 days after the last time they rode a bus. But some people wont get to ride until April 6, which is 118 days after the last time they rode the bus. Some people are getting mega screwed.
But MY buses are back, so everything is fine!
