Shopping area now lacks bus service

The only commercial shopping area in the ONEN is the Bon Shopping Center, which now has no direct bus service.

With an additional 3-5 block walk that MMT has forced riders to make, it is now more difficult for elderly and disabled neighbors that count on the bus, to do their shopping. Safeway shopping carts have recently appeared at the Nevada/Fontanero stop and the Penrose/Nevada stop because it is too far for people to carry their purchases.

After speaking with employees of Safeway, we found that shoppers that used to rely the bus, are now having to pay for a taxi.
