Double Decker Busses, At Last!

November 16, 2017

Way back in April 2012, I wrote a post about using double-decker busses in Vancouver. So, it was a great pleasure to read today that Translink are finally trialling the beasts in Metro.

And when they are done — the busses that is — we already know how to recycle them creatively.

Bike Share On The Drive

November 16, 2017

It looks as though Vancouver’s bike share program will be expanding to include Commercial and Victoria Drives next year.

According to a report in the Courier, Vancouver City Council will be putting in $1 million of a $3 million cost to expand the system east of Main Street. The system will now cover the area from Victoria to Arbutus north of 16th Avenue.

I am supportive of the program in general. However, given the millions we as taxpayers are putting into this — and the fact that residents are still being charged $10 a day for the use of a bike — I hope the company’s profits will be an open book.
