QUESTION: The Imperial County Transit bus passes Imperial Oasis, a senior housing facility on Main Street in Brawley, but there's no bus stop. The bus stops a few blocks to the east.
Oasis residents, mostly fragile, must take a taxi to the bus stop. Most are on limited incomes. Who do I see to get a bus stop? — Senior, Brawley
You could talk to Kathy Williams, a county analyst who deals with county transportation problems.
She says she grappled with the bus stop situation earlier. The trouble is Main Street is state Highway 86. The California Department of Transportation and the city decided the traffic volume is too heavy, too fast and too dangerous in front of the Imperial Oasis for a bus stop, Williams said.
Don't give up. There is a solution for you.
Call Aim Transit at 337-8002. Aim schedules its route with the county transit bus. It picks up riders at their homes and delivers them to the transit bus stops, Williams said.
