I Love Transit Week 2010

Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Translink is celebrating its second annual I Love Transit Week with a meetup event tomorrow night for all transit enthusiasts.

Canada Line Preview Tour

It’s our yearly chance to celebrate transit—because while there are many things we don’t like about transit, there are still many things that we do like! So come out for some food, fun and games during I Love Transit Night, and look out for some lovely rider-submitted essays and photos in the blog next week and in the August Buzzer.

Where Heritage Grill, New Westminster [Google Map]

Extras Food will be provided at this meetup

You can meet up with the Buzzer Blog crew at 5:30pm at Edmonds SkyTrain station bus loop (Bay 5) to ride a Nova Hybrid bus to the event.

    I just wanted to quickly write how much I miss the Vancouver transit system and Translink. My life brought me back to Nashville, TN where public transit, effectively, does not exist. I didn’t own a car for several months while I lived in North Vancouver and attended school at UBC. At the time I was grateful for Translink, but was always complaining about certain things like price hikes, no late night service, and missed transfers.

    It was easy to complain. Because I live in Nashville now, I love the Vancouver transit system. Among a ton of things, I miss being able to live without a car like I did in Vancouver. I miss being able to ride the bus with people who choose it, rather than those who are forced to ride. Although I never get passed by a bus that is too full for me, I miss simply having that option to take the bus.

    Nashville is getting better, but I still can’t get to my parents house in the burbs without a car or a very dangerous bike ride.
