Translink Follows Ferries To Disaster

It seems that Translink is following the BC Ferries model of lowering service while increasing fares. It sure hasn’t worked on the ferry system, and I don’t see it working for buses and trains, either.

By the way, did you know that when Compass kicks in, a cash-paid bus fare will NOT allow you transfer to SkyTrain? What’s with that?

Time to make Translink responsive to people’s needs. Time to get Translink under political control once again.

    “Customers will still be able to pay by cash for all transit trips. For bus trips, people paying by cash will be issued a paper “proof of payment” ticket. These “proof of payment” receipts are good for transfers between buses; however, they will not provide access through faregates.”
