I strongly oppose to this drmatic increase on cost of living nor do I agree with the increase of bus fares. I am saying this because if there is so muc mo spent on housing there will be a decrease in commercial and business profits. Transportation here in Winston Salem ia in huge demand and necessity. However, if the citizens have the advantage of Bus/Public tranportation on Sundays, businesses can profit as well.
