A good idea that is outside municipal jurisdiction. The City will continue to work with TransLink and advocate for improved transit service, including higher frequency and longer hours.dashamstyr shared this idea ·
Implementation of the City’s streetcar plan (http://vancouver.ca/streetcar) might help to enable this, by providing dramatically improved transit service to Granville Island.dashamstyr supported this idea ·

This idea is a great one, but should come with one additional feature - improved access to the island via public transit. Currently, only the 50, the 84 and the seabus have direct access to the island.
This could be achieved in many ways. Some ideas are:
1) Add signs and clear pedestrian pathways from some of the nearby bus stops, like the one at Granville Circle.
2) Create a small shuttle bus loop dedicated to the island and nearby attractions that connects people from various bus stops in the surrounding area. You could easily charge for this service to cover the expenses and it would be less than paying for parking I assure you!
