Another Rainy Dayposted October 20th, 2021 at 5:23 PM When I have to say "FUCK Translink". 20 minutes late to work; 40 minutes late getting home. Thanks a lot.

How do you expect to get people out of their cars, when transit is total sh#t? There's nothing world-class about Vancouver's transit system. AnonymousOct 21, 2021 at 6:18amCue the smug driver comments also.....Oct 21, 2021 at 6:27amwhy does it take over 5 months to replace a 30 ft escalator ? Buy a BeaterOct 21, 2021 at 9:32amI bought a cheap car. I couldn’t imagine having to take the bus again. I wonderOct 21, 2021 at 1:25pmwhy do we have to shout for the driver to open the bloody back door? If the bus is stopping then open the fucking back door. I’ve been discouraged from exiting the front of the bus and yet these genius drivers somehow forget to open the back door. ExactlyOct 21, 2021 at 3:46pmTaking transit in a city like Vancouver is a crap shoot. All the yammering in the world about how no one should be driving cars completely ignores the reality that we can’t trust the transit system to get us there in time. If you live anywhere but in an area that’s got lots of buses happening every few minutes, your commute can take hours. Hell no. You’re rightOct 21, 2021 at 5:25pmNot fun regularly waiting at Commercial and Broadway for the west bound 99 for 20 or 25 minutes at 6 PM on a workday. The last part of journey on a cramped, late bus is very draining. Get it together! And another thingOct 21, 2021 at 5:28pmAs far as I know no Skytrain police or staff have been laid off but there is zero presence on the bus or skytrain to enforce the mask policy. Total free for all. @BuyOct 21, 2021 at 8:49pmYep.For me it's cheaper, and I save over an hour commuting each day.The added bonus is not catching my twice yearly bad flu and colds- haven't had one since I gave up transit.
