"We don't serve any of the students or people who want to commute later. We're stating to see standing room only on that last Route 6 bus between the last stop in Albany and the first stop in Lebanon. In addition to the shuttle and Express buses, the service's two DD53 buses, which serve devel- opmentally disabled riders trav- eling to Sunshine Industries and other workshops and service cen- ters, are full too. "We're seeing more transpor- tation to hospitals, more people in wheelchairs taking the bus," he said. "It's a pretty key service." Another problem that Bron- son said he'd like to see solved is the lack of coordination between the five transit systems in Linn and Benton counties. "It's very difficult to get from Sweet Home to Corvallis and back in a day," he said. "They don't link up. The demand is there. We hear about it every day. We need to work something out."
