Free transit motion to be debated by Vancouver city councillors: The headline is taken from a CBC News story and the motion will be debated tomorrow. It also provides a link to the motion as a pdf file. The motion asks Council to support the All on Board  campaign.

The ill conceived Surrey LRT and the missed regional transit opportunity: Ill conceived, since according to Translink [1], The proposed Surrey L line (Guilford, Surrey central newton, titled LRT 4 in the transit study), was among the poorest options Translink has studied for Surrey. An option which will saddle translink with increased operation cost without matching r...
Arbutus corridor and accessibility: a straw man argument?: the debate is framed like it: to be against a blacktop path  is to be against accessibility. Accessibility for all activities or all abilities? It is no secret that the debate is mainly  geared by the Vancouver cycling community, and the main local organization, HUB, has made clear its visi...
