        Opps now the OBA will require government workers to take more furlough days since we only have money for America’s Cup.

        PTB?? Union byes….

    • Jim Bob says:

      How do we even know there was money in them? I mean not like the idiots stuck in the middle of summer where the taking could have been higher so we cannot assume that they even checked there was money inside before they committed the crime.

        Because the article says, a police spokesperson stated;
        “It appears that an unknown quantity of cash was removed from ten public buses at that location overnight.”
        I also doubt the culprit would have stolen 10 canisters if they were all empty.

    • Plus de $13 Million for buses that we sent and de guy vanished.

    Why do they leave cash in the buses?

  3. Mary says:

    should be a cashless system anyway bus tickets should be sold at all shops

  4. clearasmud says:

    Previously it was reported that the cash boxes were made removable so they would not be left in the bus. What happened? Someone in senior management should have to answer for this!

  5. Pondering says:

    If there were police stationed in the town, we may’ve been able to move on this a bit quicker.

  6. Devonshire Devils Advocate says:

    I think it’s time to move to a cashless system like a metro card or an Oyster card.

  7. drunken ursula says:

    crazy

  8. UmJustSaying says:

    Why ask why?
    Accountability and responsibility do not apply when decisions are made. Find a few capable people….please.

    A metro bus pass would be ideal, let,s get it done. I don,t know how long it will take, the experts need to speak to this. How do we handle folks who seldom catch the bus. A monthly pass is 69 dollars….There were suppose to be cameras on thes e buses..and what happen to cctv…are not these buses worth a $100,000.00 each, suppose the culprits had smashed windows, slashed tires, broken headlights. Would a proper security system cost $5,000 to $8,000. It would be somewhat difficult to physically keep an eye on our schools and other public buildings, thus we need the cameras and intruder alert systems, in particular during the hours of darkness.
