Create a surface network for transit
[Submitted via email by Ann Foster]
Improve transit by creating a surface network which covers all the main streets of Vancouver, instead of focusing on one or two very expensive "corridors". This has been done in Zurich, Switzerland where 70% of all trips are made by transit. Cycling in Vancouver is limited by hills, rain, bike theft, and the perception that showers and special clothing is required.
Most arterial streets in Vancouver already have local service which is “frequent” by TransLink standards. The City is supportive of increased frequency and reliability, especially in high-demand corridors.
