Stupid Is As Stupid Does – I Expect Nothing More From TransLink


So, what do the three new board members know about transit?

Zilch, nada, nothing.

But, I bet they all know how to cash a stipend.

Thus the farce we call TransLink, continues.

This is pork barrel politics at its very worst!

    Was wondering if you’re a guest of honor in tomorrow’s opening of Evergreen line? It’s a big day for our cities so instead of being a negative nancy, come and join the celebrations with the other people of the community!

    The Evergreen Line is the epitome of everything wrong with TransLink.

    It is the unfinished portion of the old Broadway – Lougheed (Broadway @ Arbutus to the Tri_Cities rapid LRT project, which when the switch was made to SkyTrain, was too expensive to build.

    There is a needless and expensive tunnel because TransLink is ignorant of the fact that Linear Induction Motors are very good in climbing steep grades. In fact LIM’s were only supposed to be used on transit lines with steep gradients!

    Vastly too expensive for what it does, all the Evergreen line will do is increase the cost of transit in the region which means higher taxes to pay for another SkyTrain “White Elephant”.

    As one transit expert across the pond said to me in an email; “I guess your roads are paved in gold.”
