Evan,

I'll be there. Translink is obsessed by Skytrain; too expensive, inflexible and fixed link. We've wasted so much money to serve so little in terms of area.  Light rail for the valley is the priority for commuters.

Hey Angela,

Transportation is not my forte (or main interest), and I look forward to hearing what everyone has to say and seeing what comes of it.

By all means, join us!

I sent you an invite to join Transportation about 30 minutes ago.

Hi Ross,

I'm willing to give up my evening of possible magically endless debauchery (?) to contribute a realistic and car-realistic viewpoint. The current bike lane expenditure related to per capita use in Vancouver is rubbish. Skytrain is ridiculously overpriced transportation, most importantly it is fixed link and so not suited to a flexible future.
