Hey what's up with the 95 B-Line? Isn't the 135 supposed to be changed over this year? It doesn't look like it's part of any of translink's bus upgrades for September 1st.

It's delayed. Might have something to do with the RapidBus thing.

What a great idea! A good way of preventing graffiti as well.

It's a better way of beautifying the pillars than just painting them green, like a lot of other countries do (I'm looking at you, Singapore).

Not sure what you're implying, but I can say that Singapore does not paint its concrete pillars green.

I'm sure it does, I've seen them. I remember seeing them on the supports of a bridge there as well.

Do you mean this?



That's the only green pillars I can think of. And living here, I should know. Sorry to hijack the Canada Line thread. Nice to see that the construction is progressing well.

Fantastic pictures - thanks for posting

I see that at Braid, Translink still hasn't updated the destination sign - it still says "Commercial" even though trains have been running beyond to VCC-Clark for years now.

very nice photos of the subway stations. I like the stainless steel and glass designs, opens up the architecture. I noticed it was very clean as well and you can't find any vandalism and graffiti. look like in some large cities which have public buses and subways vandalised and graffiti.
