  1. Stalled train on Canada line normal service will be soon restored. I am glad I had to wait 2 minutes for the next train not 18 minutes.
  2. 1. The transit police would just travel around on buses and trains checking tickets. 6. TransLink would publicize the reward system on social media and the media. I understand that people should be aware of rewards. Why did not mention the distance base fare because we really need to award people who use and try to make people driver less. But they could revamp the zone based system to make more fare if you go one or two Stations from the last Station in zone boundary excluding Scott Road Station to Columbia Station, you should be considered a single zone rider only if use a Compass c
  3. 1. It would have Transit police a point now? 2. Yes a discount for showing a Compass card. 4. Compass system would be hand off to Provincal Government and TransLink would get money back from building and operating the system. 5 and 7. Ok 6. I see your point but disagree with it since the system would do for you. 8. TransLink should, anyway,introduce a low income option where you get cheaper fares and free card.
  4. I wish TransLink would use Compass system to its full benefit by: 1. All door boarding every route at all stops. 2. Elimation of months passes and day passes by capping the fare each day and monthly fare cap. 3. Discount at stores to increase transit useable. 4. BC Transit and BC Ferries joining the Compass system. 5. Cell phone Payment. 6. Offer free rides after a certain amount of trips. 7. Credit and debt card payment on bus and fare gates. 8. Trying to go to cashless system.
  5. P3315 is on the 555, I am on it right now.
  6. Oh your talking about XN40 being transferred. Yes there are service increases on 160/180.
  7. If bus shortage at PCTC why don't just transfer back 2014 XN40 permanently back to PCTC bring back some of stored D40LF to HTC.
  8. 1. I don't remind hearing anything about that. 2. True. 3. But public, mayors and TransLink might change there mind if there are a lot crashs and a lot of system delays due traffic. Langley Line could easily change because no one has putting funding towards building it.
  9. But Provincial Government could operate decided the fate of Fraser Highway line.
  10. New express routes to connect to fast Ferries: http://www.kitsapsun.com/story/news/2017/06/15/express-buses-feed-bremerton-fast-ferries/400401001/
  11. I highly doubt that news paper, City of Surrey or TransLink wouldn't pay to have specific poll with just one important question if they already know what they building.
  12. I know it is not scientific poll because having referendum to decide on what to build would be waste of time and money.
  13. So then would you support a bus service from every other city in Metro Vancouver to Downtown Vancouver when SkyTrain could handle all the passenger? But the route could be peak only during the off peak hours and all day, seven days a week during peak season to help reduce the operation costs.
  14. This is only poll I could find: http://blog.daryldelacruz.com/2016/02/16/deconstructing-surrey-lrt-survey/ http://skytrainforsurrey.org/2016/02/12/city-poll-lrt-fails/
  15. But your argument seems like duplication of service is waste of money. So, TransLink should use same logical of they use for SkyTrain making a stations the terminus for buses. So all those routes should been moved to Lonsdale Quay. A passenger only ferry could help Bowen Island economy grow stronger because more tourists could be drawn to it because of the direct service to Downtown. No because the service would probably need be subsidized like the rest of transit service or maybe TransLink hasn't approved them to operate the route.
  16. SeaBus has many of 209, 210, 211, 240, 241, 246, 247, 250, 253, 254 and 257 duplicate part of route and hasn't effect the SeaBus ridership that much.

  18. @maege, the bus route would be eliminated. Sorry, I didn't quote you because it seems not to working.
  19. 1. Then reduce without any prior wrong or even doing a new release. 3. It not route that down by TransLink it self. It is operate by Bowen Island Community Transit. BC Ferries may help pay for operations during construction. Horeshoe Bay is or will become over capacity that is why BC Ferries is or did consider eliminating the Horeshoe Bay to Departure Bay route. So Bowen Island could benefit from trying to help capicity at Horeshoe Bay because of the direct route. Hell, the route could be peak hours during off peak season, and all day, seven days a week during peak season.
  20. 1. From 2015 until BC Ferries change all vessel car capacity the Queen of Capilano could carry 100 cars per sailing, so no it is giving Bowen Island route the original capacity back from the upgrade. I don't see BC Ferries building another class of vessels from 44 cars to 100 cars. 2. The Downtown route would be good use to eliminate the gap in service and gave people an alternative to BC Ferries. Bowen Island Community Shuttles can be timed to connect to that route which would have better on time performance. 3. Since Bowen Island is part of Metro Vancouver BC Ferries may want TransLink t
  21. Saw a C40LFR in in active bus BO line at HTC.
  22. REM might not open in 2020 as plan: http://montrealgazette.com/news/local-news/2020-target-in-danger-for-new-light-rail-rem-line-report-says
  23. 1. Keep the same service but with a better vessel for the route such as another Century Class or a new 100 car shuttle class. I think most people might look at the Downtown route as more directly, easier to get Bowen Island and cheaper since it would be three zone transit ticket to ride the route. 2. Actually Bowen Island ferry gets a lot of use because they need increase the car capacity on the vessel. Also Century Class was going to be built for route and the Island Sky was built for spefic route. 3. It would help out Horseshoe Bay because less people wouldn't go Horseshoe Bay wh
