  1. If it does every happen, likely a new bay on street

    At this point they might as well have a once a day daily charter service from VTC to PCTC and back.

    Yeah, that's mostly accurate. While you will take many cars off the road, you won't take all of them off. There are the people who prefer to drive, buses, thru traffic, etc.

    If you didn't read some three posts ago, he had no idea what it was.
  5. TransLink Future - Dream's and Aspirations

    It's a service term used by TransLink and they want to expand the network. They have a whole map of FTN routes and it's pretty large all the way out to Maple Ridge and Langley.

    Can you get any pictures?

  8. 2018 Garage Transfers and Storage Reactivations

    Can anyone explain all the transfers? Wouldn't transfers have *some* expense?
  9. TransLink Future - Dream's and Aspirations

    Why not extend it to Marine Dr Stn right away? Run it as a streetcar down Kent, or upgrade the tracks. I think it would be more useful as a line.
  10. Anyone create their own transit system?

On to... NEWS MARCH 24, 2018 (Lonver, LF) TransMetro has completed construction of the 998 BRT and the 9th busway. The 998 BRT has been planned for 5 years, as part of the new sustainable growth strategy adopted by the City of Lonver and the City of Yale in 2009. Included in this strategy yet to be constructed include the Eastside Line, the Prior Street busway and Burbee corridor rapid transit. The area is the fastest growing corridor in all of Western Canada, making it a prime candidate for future upgrade to MRT or LRT. The 9th busway was constructed as a cheap way to speed up bus service on the 9th St corridor. The original road was 3 lanes per direction, with a narrow, unsafe sidewalk for all the foot traffic along the corridor. One lane in each direction was converted to bus only, while another was converted to a wider sidewalk with bike lane. Overhead pedestrian flashers were installed every 200 metres, with pedestrian and bus priority at intersections.

    (shouldn't this go in double decker procurement post) Aren't the double deckers going on the 620 too, replacing artics?
