A total of five cuts will be made to transit service in Nelson, with the first coming into effect Aug. 1 with the elimination of Sunday service.
Council voted in late June in favour of slicing and dicing the Sunday offering in order to save $31,000 out of the City’s annual budget for transit.
The City will also cut service to Perrier Road, Crease and Richards streets, no “overload’ runs to the Waldorf School and will reduce its summer service.
Imagine the future where cars run on the most available, non-poluting source - air. Well these two engineers have developed just that - a car engine that runs on compressed air. While it currently needs to use a generator to fill the air tanks in the car, they are now also looking into an on-board generator for continual fuel supply.
Well worth a watch!
