From commenter “Queen Bee:”
This bus service was initiated by McHenry Township in 1998.
The County McRide Program commenced in 2011.
Why McHenry Township didn’t cut their duplicate bus line when the County began theirs is a mystery until you understand that township government is all about government bloat and getting more patronage people on the government dole with beautiful pensions these people would never get in the private sector.
Tax payers get hosed.
The County Program is superior in every way.
The township program only operates M-F/County McRide 7 days a week.
Township will only take you within McHenry Township.
County McRide will take you anywhere in County, and some place beyond.
Township operates its bus 8am-3 pm
County McRide operates 6am-7pm M-F/9am-5pm Sat/Sun
So, the trustees that voted to cut the duplicate program are right on!
I assume the biggest criers are township employees.
Apparently nobody cares about seniors getting taxed out of their homes.
I congratulate the trustees who finally stood up to government waste!
