It's a bus service that's popular among Dixon's elderly and students, but due to budgetary issues, could be heavily impacted.
That was the issue before Dixon City Council members Wednesday during a special budget meeting held within the chambers of the Dixon City Council.
The Vacaville Reporter stated that the bus services' expenses exceed revenues, the services' curb-to-curb service is difficult to staff during peak hours and that the costs are rising for the service according to the city's senior management analyst Janet Koster.
The article states that students who transition from a school bus system to the city's Readi-Ride service are causing staffing challenges during the peak hours of use.
City leaders expressed concern that the bus service is no longer sustainable. One councilman, Thom Bogue, asked city staff to look at ways to minimize maintenance costs by using the buses during off-peak hours so that the buses' life span can be maximized according to the story.
Now we put the question to the readers of Dixon Patch.
Should the Dixon City Council make the Readi-Ride service a priority and attempt to maintain the level of service currently enjoyed by everyone who uses it?
Is this a service that Dixon can do without? Tell us your thoughts in the comments section of this story.
