With all this talk of a green initiative in Dedham, doing away with the local bus is a step in the wrong direction. I also do not understand why the fact that there was a local bus was not advertised to the town. I think most residents are unaware they could take a bus from their neighborhood to the square as well as other parts of town. I bet a lot more families would take the bus to go to the Dedham Library if they knew about it. In addition, the loss of the bus will hurt the Dedham Square businesses when the parking meters go into effect in the fall. I am sure the free lots attached to businesses such as CVS, Citizens Bank, etc., will be filled by patrons and people looking for free parking. I have no intention of paying for parking to pick up a prescription and I can't guarantee I can be back to my car within 15 minutes. I also usually stopped in one or two other stores while I am in the square but I won't do that once the meters are in effect. I would, however, do that if I could take a bus there.

I agree with the ban. It is common sense but unfortunately some people don't have common sense. They had to rescue over 30 people from their cars over night but it could have been a lot worse. Have you heard about one town or city, or police officer or snow plow driver, or the national guard member who isn't praising the decision.
