Canada Line Bus Integration

with 6 comments

There was a bit of argy bargy in the comments section here not so long ago about this issue . I was being taken to task – but only being given examples in Vancouver.  Well maybe that is because the Canada Line bus integration plan was not then public but is now going to open houses. There is an advert in this weekend’s Richmond Review. I could find nothing on the Translink web site or in the Buzzer blog – and searches turned up nothing like this (except stuff a year old on the CMBC page) so I will have to do some copy typing. (Here is the public consultation page which may get updated by the time you read this). The Canada Line Current consultations page mentions them but provides no details at all. It is perhaps not quite as bad as being in a locked cupboard, in the basement, with a sign on the door reading “Beware of the Leopard” – but it is hardly up to current standards of openness.
