    I love your idea Gerard, I think if we can get Vancouver to be even less Car-dependent it will green up our city immensely. Transportation and heating are the 2 highest energy users in Canada. Let alone the air quality impacts of the millions of cars on the road. Marrying the capital costs is a great way to over come the main hurdles of transit and DES.

    Since the inception of Translink as the transit operators, short term profit has become the name of the game and not service to the city and its peole. There is no operating cost or ecological sense in running so many diesel buses in the highly populous areas such as the b-lines. In terms of heating, it is a waste to use high grade fuel such as natural gas and electricity to inefficiently heat our homes.

    Your idea will help address the capital cost issue for both systems that are essential in creating a green city.
