Another TransLink Epic Fail

Really, one is almost speechless, watching TransLink imploding under one bad decision after another.

Message to BC Minister of Transportation, Todd Stone; “Quit your hiding in Kamloops and put a stop to TransLink’s ongoing nonsense.” It is time for regime change.

TransLink spending $100K on office space in Surrey

URREY (NEWS1130) ai??i?? TransLink is spending more than $100,000 a month on office space locked into a six-year lease in Surrey while it looks for a subtenant.

It comes after it decided to consolidate all of its offices into one building in New Westminster. Jiana Ling with TransLink says theyai??i??re having trouble finding subtenants for a building near Gateway in Surrey. ai???It is the market right now. We are actively looking for a subtenant but the market in Surrey is a high vacancy rate.ai???

The decision has Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan angry. He thinks it will be paying the costly rent for awhile. ai???I havenai??i??t seen a lot of businesses locating into that area in the past year, so I think they are going to find difficulty in getting a tenant.ai???

He questions whether offices should have been consolidated with long-term lease obligations looming.

Corrigan also wanted public consultation and says TransLink did this quietly.
