Earlier this week, I released the 2nd Annual Transit Report Card of Major Canadian Regions. Over the last few days, I’ve had the opportunity to talk about the results of that report card. I thought I would share some of the interviews that I gave about it.
The first interview is from Global BC 1 where I provide some context around the report card, and what some of the metrics mean.
The second interview is from Roundhouse Radio. The interview starts at 33:20. Some of the things that we talked about were the differences between perception and reality when it comes to TransLink. We also talked about how TransLink’s service optimization has been effective in creating a transit system that, more so than other agencies in Canada, matches service with demand. I also noted that without any further investment in transit operations, we will see a degradation of transit service quality in Metro Vancouver.
