Would be nice to have a way to travel longer distances without having to wait so long for your ride (i.e. 69 runs once each hour during non-peak hours). If you miss your bus, you have to wait another hour, provided that the next bus doesn't break down. Seems like it splitting the route in half would permit for higher frequency of trips per hour available and less stress on the drivers (trying to keep a reliable schedule from downtown to Trafford and back again has got to be challenging, what with road construction, weather, and accidents. Not sure if this would require a special pass, single or dual fee, or coordinated buses for mid-way transfers, but it definitely needs close evaluation and action. I have ridden buses for ten years and nothing comes close to the frustrations of having to rely on that 69 bus. I've spoken to bus drivers who said they'd skip their breaks at the end of their routes just to try to keep closer to their schedules. That's a long ride without a break. I think that some modification to the long distance routes could benefit the riders and the drivers. And hey, why not? What's wrong with a little less stress?
