Some transit users who take the No.52 bus through Bayers Lake Business Park are frustrated with changes being made to the popular bus route, which no longer goes across the business centre’s main parking lot.

Mary MacDonald, who uses a wheelchair, says she takes the bus to go shopping at Bayers Lake on a regular basis and used to get dropped off at one of four stops in the parking lot.

But the No.52 now only stops on Chain Lake Drive, which she says is making her commute more challenging.

She said she has to completely reassess the situation to figure out how she’ll get around.

“I don’t know if the bus stop down there is wheelchair accessible. I’d have to check that out,” she said.
