Yesterday, I was on CBC Radio One’s On The Coast talking about SkyTrain and TransLink. I talked about how the lack of long-term funding for transit in our region has forced TransLink to “optimize” transit service, doing more with less. I talked about how it leads to a less resilient system, so when one part of the system fails, the ability of the rest of the system to compensate is reduced.
I also talked about the need for TransLink to improve its communication when transit service is disrupted, including how to prevent people from breaking out of trains.
