  1. It's not burnt, it's just a bit of soot that is normal when burning anything. I think it's more obvious with Vancouver's torch because the flame goes down the side rather than just on top. In any case, it wipes off easily with a cloth, but most people I've seen leave it there, makes it more authentic I suppose.
  2. All Translink services, including the West Coast Express, are free if you have a ticket, which is actually a pretty great deal. I know they're adding extra trains with late night service etc. but at this point I think it's hard to say how busy it will be during the games.
  3. I've been told that there is about 70 tonnes of lighting, rigging etc. suspended from the roof for the ceremonies. So yes, it would be safe to assume it could support a few people.
  4. ATMs at venues also only accept VISA cards. So if you're planning to pay with cash make sure you get it before you get to the venue.
  5. Sorry to post again, but just found this as well. This one is less detailed, but shows the venues and major transit lines. http://www.translink.ca/en/Utilities/2010-Games/2010-Maps.aspx
  6. There's a pretty good map on the Tourism Vancouver website. It allows you to highlight venues, etc. http://www.tourismvancouver.com/visitors/vancouver/tools/interactive_vancouver_map There's also a decent (although not very detailed) map inside the front cover of the Spectator Guide, which you can probably find in Vancouver during the Games.
  7. You only need a pass for northbound travel between 6am and 6pm. Outside of these hours, or if traveling southbound, you do not need any pass.
