“It’s not the right time to cut the stops off,” student Stuart Mohamed said. “It’s during the summer, gas is going up.”

Most of the stops closing like Neeld and Coast are within sight of another stop, so commuters say it’s just something they’ll have to get used to.
“Either way, it’s about the same distance,” Chris Mazzeo said. “It’s still an uphill battle.”
