The representative of the PR firm pushing the publicity campaign for its publication  has a different view of the meaning of “Fair Use” which, if followed, would have made this review incoherent. I am not willing to do that.

  1. Luckily I read your review via email from WordPress before you removed it. Good review.

    I agree with your point about dedicated bus lanes as an effective way to improve bus reliability and travel times. I’ve emailed TransLink about congestion issues on Robson Street during rush hour (I commute on the 5 bus) and how a dedicated bus lane would help, but I wonder if Vancouver council might have more power to improve the situation, since they regulate street parking. Do you know if any candidates are addressing bus lanes? Robson and Georgia St would be two good locations.

  2. I have not seen much about bus lanes in Vancouver anywhere. As for the election that seems to be obsessed with bike lanes.

    Given the huge number of candidates running there might well be a bus lane enthusiast but it would take quite a lot of effort to ferret that out, I think.

    I did not keep a copy of the review. Would you forward that email to me, please?
