Metrorail — Pathetic and life threatening services
To Whom It May Concern:
I am a very frustrated metrorail commuter who is at the end of her tether. I am sick and tired of the Northern lines being cancelled and delayed by an hour sometimes!! Is it because we come from farm dominated arrears??? Is it because we are not as important as the southern suburbs folk???? That line hardly ever has delays or cancellations!!!
I have been commuting for many a years and have slowly but surely noted the deterioration of the services which is more commonly used than buses and taxi’s. It sickens me to think that we, the commuters concerns, are not seen and taken to heart as change happens but not for the better. It just gets worst and worst.
If you’re not being squashed to near death because of overcrowding, your being issued warnings at work for constantly coming late due to the trains being cancelled and then the next one is delayed due to technical reasons. Peoples lives are put in danger due to your inefficiency, and believe me when I tell you that the bosses just don’t care much for that piece of paper you scribble on.
In fact, it’s so bad that I have begun to ask myself, “who contributes to the economy of this country” Now you might ask yourself, where is this going? Let me tell you where;
1. When the soccer world cup came, did we have any trains cancelled? No!!!
2. When the soccer world cup came, were there overcrowded trains? No!!!
3. When the soccer world cup came, were there train delays? No!!!
4. When the soccer world cup came, did we have dirty trains? No!!!
5. When the soccer world cup came, did we have to worry about muggings or robbing on the trains? No!!!
Now the world cup is gone and things are worst than it was before!! The people left behind are us, the people who are suffering while the foreigners had all the luxury!!! Is that fair? We need to explain to irate bosses why we are late. We arrive late for our childrens concerts and parent meetings!!!
Are the foreigners more important than we are?? So what if they brought in foreign currency??? Why was it not used constructively??? Why do we who feed this economy have to suffer because of your incompetence???
I’ve had it I tell you!! I’ll be sending this to all and sundry. I’ll even open up a web page with all the pictures as evidence if you like. Third Degree’s Debra Patter, Hello Peter, Minister of transportation, Minister of public works are only a few of the people who I’ll be sending this to and I’ll continue to due so and post it in all news papers on a daily basis until it is taken seriously!!!
Now ask yourself again, who feeds this countries economy!!!
Your service is pathetic to say the least!!!
