Will Vancouver's Public Transit Network Tank Before The Olympics Arrive?


Recommended Posts

Translink, the body that governs public transportation in Vancouver, has public said that they were threatening to cut 40% of all bus service if it can't raise the necessary funds to maintain it's current transit network. If it doesn't raise the funds, and does cancel 40% of metro Vancouver buses, do you think it will happen before or after the Olympics?

From what I see the last they could effectively do anything is around the beginning of December when routes and changes being planned from January onwards to April-ish are being finalized. Most likely they will attempt a big move, but I don't think it will be very drastic, seeing as they could be wary of a major overhaul and authority change mandated by the city if they disrupt the games too much for comfort. But, isn't TransLink in an Olympic service period agreement with Metro Van? I don't remember specifically.
