Hospital And University Busier Than The Uptown These Days

The large numbers of people who make their way to the Regional Hospital and U-N-B Saint John each weekday were seen as a potential pool of riders for the Comex suburban bus service. 

It's estimated 16 hundred people from the Kennebecasis Valley go to the hospital and university to work or attend classes each weekday but It hasn't turned out that way. The problem, according to Saint John Transit General Manager Frank McCarey is that the starting times are all different.

McCarey does observe the hospital and university appear to be busier these past few years than the uptown, at least judging by bus ridership.
