Might give the media something good to talk about for a change. Fort McMurray is a rapidly growing city. They need to take whatever measures needed or required to protect the future growth of the community. But placing measures like it's manditory for workers to take the bus or face fines for not obey company policies or something. Until something is put in place like a train or whatever. The roads cannot keep up with the amount of traffic it holds. Therefore, hard working tax payers money is being spend on unnecessary repairs instead of building new roads, creating better transportation. I agree with taking the bus forsure.
The same could be said for the amount of people who work south of the bridge. Make all of them take the public transit to take the strains off parking and traffic. But we all know that isn't practical.
I'm telling you if they took away a 1/4 or 1/2 of the company vehicles and made them car pool it would make a huge difference. I would rather capool then take the germ infested diversified buses anyday. I would even pay a $1000/year premium so I could drive my own vehicle out to work.
