"So easy! Amazing friendly bus drivers! They are on the frontlines driving us (essential workers to our jobs) and some days I'm the only passenger. That scares me. How long can this keep up financially. So I tlaked to district 44 rep John Lovick and told him how important community transit is to me." - Melanie Wentz, April 2, 2020
When we saw that, we reached out to Melanie. Here are her words:
"I have used Community Transit for the last three years; at first it was confusing and scary for this now almost 55-year-old. Thanks to your wonderful drivers, I now navigate five days a week (and sometimes more) successfully! I can even go to Puyallup and Tacoma on an enjoyable bus ride (seems like an adventure!) to visit family.
I work at Haggens in Lake Stevens and I'm a cashier. Your drivers are thoughtful and take good care of me-- without them I couldn't keep my job. I've worked for Haggens since 1997. It's like my second home. Without Community Transit, I wouldn't have my job.
Again, thank you for taking care of me during this time and during normal times. You are amazing!”
