  1. Broadway SkyTrain Extension

    There could be a station at Camosun Street as it would be right in the middle of the two stations and within proximity of the redevelopment area.
  2. SFU/Skytrain Gondola

    The SFU Gondola was listed as a potential project for the 10-Year Plan but now it isn't? It can't be any more expensive than building a Light Rail line out to Langley.

    You're right, but I think the extension to UBC could be included in Phase 3 if the Arbutus Extension is constructed and talks about funding for the future extension go well between TransLink, City of Vancouver, Mayor's Council, and UBC.
  4. The Unloading Bay, nothing could go wrong there. Artics could work if a curb was cut and the 388 & C98 shared a Bay. But you're right about the Unload Bay, I hope that it would be fixed before artics are put on or else they might have to Unload in another Bay. I would assume a new hourly shuttle route would eventually be put in as it is never busy, yesterday I was on a via Trapp bus and he missed the turn onto Willard and had to turn onto the dirt road on 14th Ave to get back on route, he picked up one passenger along the via Trapp route.

    I do agree that Vancouver is getting more service increases compared to the suburbs, or any other municipality for that matter, but Vancouver does have higher ridership. Although I will say that the suburbs seem to be the very back end of the 10-Year Plan, which is unfortunate. If the 99 was to be fully replaced by the Millennium Line there could be greater increases to suburban services, but knowing TransLink they'll just move all trips used by the 99 to other B-Lines.

    That's true, but TransLink seems very hesitant to include it in the Mayor's Plan, even though they would save more money obtaining funding from UBC now and not waiting 10+ years when land value increases.
  7. I was talking with a driver on the 100 yesterday and he said that artics are coming to the 100 soon to deal with the overcrowding.

  9. I just shared DailyHive's article on the Service thread, hopefully they secure funding by 2021 and get the line running by 2028.
  10. To anyone who hasn't been to the 10-Year Plan website recently, here's how much of the 10-Year Plan is currently funded: SkyTrain Broadway Extension - 1% Surrey LRT - 1% Bus & HandyDART - 45% Rail - 40% Transit Exchanges - 31% Major Road Network - 25% Walking & Cycling - 33% SeaBus - 100% Mobility Innovation - 10% Current Total Amount - 32% http://dailyhive.com/vancouver/ubc-broadway-subway-funding-campus The 99 B-Line could end sooner than we thought. It also looks like there could be an additional station at UBC.
  11. The Millennium Line could probably be elevated along University Blvd to UBC as it looks like there's enough space to fit a Guideway in between the Eastbound and Westbound lanes.
  12. Should I add/remove anything to the suggested route changes? I was thinking of sending the suggested route changes to TransLink's Planning Department eventually since SoF (South of Fraser) Transit is currently not at a very ideal state.
  13. Canada Line train 01 is finally using the current announcements after I menioned to TransLink on Twitter that it was still using the old announcements.
