^ unfortunately, he's not joking. This is far from being the first time he has complained about this.

- I never knew Queen E. did that, that's pretty cool. I watched "The Queen" a year or so ago, i had no idea she knew how to drive (after Diana's death) nor that she was allowed to wander in the wilderness alone and drive alone.

- LMAO at the pool video...wow

- all those Chinese traffic intersection pics are unreal, wow...what happened to the traffic lights?

ssiguy has a point.

We are approaching the point with SkyTrain where we should be lengthening the trains. Sure, it costs money, but as he said this is easier to get from the start of a project than later.

All that being said, regarding the seat issue, for people going from Surrey to Downtown, backtracking one station is a small price to pay for a seat. For those who have a shorter ride, it's hardly worth it.

It is interesting to note that the new SkyTrain MKIIs have fewer seats, which results in more standing space... which is a good thing.

Standing isn't a problem. It's having something to hold onto while standing that is.

One also can't compare Japanese crowding to Vancouver crowding. Vancouverites don't shower as often nor as thoroughly (this is a general statement, and it is part cultural... I'm not calling anyone here dirty. I'm sure everyone here showers every day and spend at least 15 minutes ritually scraping all the dead skin off their body with an abrasive cloth or loofah. ) As a consequence, crowding is altogether more unpleasant in Vancouver.

the canada line isn't particularly long, and its catchment basin isn't particularly heavily populated. for the vast majority of its patrons, standing 25 minutes really isn't that much of an imposition.

while i agree that larger trains and longer platforms (and many other features of the larger PT systems of the world) would be beneficial to the skytrain, we must realize that like most everything else, there are financial constraints. ideally, the various lower density, upper-middle class neighborhoods along the vancouver section of the canada line would be progressively upzoned. *the housing along the canada line is composed of balloon framed tract houses, and were never intended to stand forever, yet the nimbys suddenly see split-level brady bunch houses as sacred.* THEN, the canada line would be utilized more efficiently.

But the thing is, that IS happening. Many more cars will be arriving over the next few months, and there are plans to buy many more in 2011.

Yea, those Mark II's we have right now really lack bars to hold onto.

If you guys love spending $5 for the pleasure of being stacked like a sardine then what can I say?...........knock yourself out. That however will not help ridership growth. If people don't like transit they won't use it but for those who might change over to transit won't be swayed by discomfort. You can bitch or scream or whatever but it's simply reality and we all know it. Its like a bus shelter..........a small comfort to get out of Vancouver rain but it is a pleasant reprieve and all of a sudden waiting for the bus doesn't seem so bad.

BTW..............if you are going to make comparisons or references then use sane ones. Greater Tokyo has 15X Vancouver's population and European cities that you have referred to suchas Paris also have a system that is over a century old.

Dude, you're complaining about 11 people on a train. 99% of subway commuters on the planet are going to think it's absurd that you consider that an inconvenience.

I was born in London and the media used to comment on the fact that the Queen would do that. I suppose I'd hate not being able to take the Tube and walk down Regent's Street just like everyone else. Apparently, no one ever recognized her.

That wave pool is a lifeguards night mare. If someone drowned, you'd only find out once everyone got out of the pool and you noticed something at the bottom of the pool. I like busy cities, but that pool is even too much for me. The Chinese traffic jams are quite a sight! Too many cars, too little road, and lots of atrocious driver's is a perfect storm. It's probably only going to get worse in most places around the world. In Mumbai, people spend 4 hours driving 10 km to work. You just learn to live with other people. I have to laugh when Torontonians think their city is busy. It's not deserted, but it's not even close to being as dense and congested as many other cities around the world.

^ Lifeguards at the Tokyo pool: "If we get through today with just 5 drownings, we'll call it a success".


And ssiguy2, you're the one that is doing all the screaming and complaining...not us. And population size doesn't matter, we are talking about the principles of mass transit that are universal.

I hope they build the cascadia high speed rail. As it is now, it's not so simple to jump on a train from portland to van, bc. Depending on what train you catch, you may need to transfer to a bus in seattle (as i did last summer). I think this is because it is not cost effective for Amtrak to keep their trains overnight in Vancouver - parking costs maybe. If we cant work out terms for a normal train north/south on the west coast, building a high speed train is going to be a lot harder. I hope it happens, though!

my friend has caught the train quite a bit to seattle

I will have to ask him again but I think they don't stop at the border anymore - they go through US customs in Vancouver

It would be easier to build a high speed train to Vancouver, BC due to all the open land available north of Everett. There are plans in the future to add dedicated 180 km/h track north of Everett all the way to South of Bellingham. (probably with an intermission in Mount Vernon but who knows). The next section would be North of Bellingham to the border. Beyond the border, you could add a White Rock bypass along the 99 to the Fraser River crossing, that would reduce the trip at 180 km/h maximum speed down to just under 3 hours. Although, I'm thinking if we have new dedicated high speed track to bump it up to 220 km/h maximum speed to keep Pacific Central a viable terminus instead of at Scott Road Skytrain.

Today: official test run from Waterfront Station terminus to YVR Airport Station terminus, with Premier Gordon Campbell in the front seat.

As well, the Canada Line will open 3 months early....sometime between August 1 to Sept.8.

As heard on the video, it looks like the Expo Line extension will use 104th Avenue, 152nd Street, and Fraser Highway. They mentioned something about tunneling.

Which window... the front? If you are talking about the front I believe all 4 front seats have a clear view, with the 2 closest to the centre having full 100% view.

Cool vid. I love time lapses like that. I didn't know so much of it was underground though. Great addition to Vancouvers already great transit.

For Immediate Release

2009TRAN0059-000750

April 7, 2009
Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure

Government of Canada




CANADA-BC PARTNERSHIP TO BUILD LOCAL INFRASTRUCTURE


RICHMOND – The Federal and Provincial governments are providing funding towards $41.2 million in several local infrastructure projects, announced today by Richmond MP Alice Wong and MLA for Richmond East Linda Reid.

A new $26.9-million interchange will be built at Nelson Road and Highway 91, to provide direct access from Highway 91 to the Fraser Port Industrial Area by extending Nelson Road north from the Westminster Highway. The new interchange will provide an alternate route for traffic using Westminster Highway as an east-west connection from Richmond, Highway 99, and Knight Street. This project will reduce traffic congestion, and create better access to the highway network. Community partners will also contribute funding towards this project.

$12.3 million of the joint funding will provide two new sections of shoulder bus lanes along Highway 99 – one from Sea Island Way to Westminster Highway (southbound), and one from Steveston Highway to Westminster Highway (northbound) tying into shoulder bus lanes currently under construction. This project will significantly reduce travel time for buses operating south of the Fraser River.

In addition, $2 million will go towards extending Lansdowne Road to link #3 Road and the Olympic Oval.

“Canada's economic action plan is working for Richmond,” said Wong. “This announcement is a great example how the Canadian government works together with other levels of government to fund projects that will have long-term benefits for the Asia-Pacific Gateway.”

“These projects are spectacular news for Richmond,” said Reid. “We’re improving access to Fraser Port, minimizing impacts on local farmers and residents along Westminster Highway and creating 260 new jobs. We’re also making it easier for residents to use transit. All of these infrastructure projects will bring long lasting benefits to my constituents.”

These projects are a part of the $290-million infrastructure investment, recently announced by the Government of Canada and the Province of B.C.

The provincial portion of the funding comes from an overall $14-billion capital infrastructure program supported by the Province that will create up to 88,000 jobs and help build vital public infrastructure in every region of B.C.

The federal portion of the funding comes from the $4-billion Infrastructure Stimulus Fund to provide funding to provincial, territorial and municipal infrastructure projects. Funding will be available for two years for projects that will begin during the 2009 and 2010 construction seasons. This initiative is structured to flow funding and get shovels in the ground quickly.

Traffic pattern change at Eagleridge Interchange and North Junction

And finally the big one for those of you who didn't see the news today. The new 4-lane connection between the Eagle Ridge Interchange and the Sea-to-Sky highway opened today in West Vancouver on highway 1. The following link from the project website shows the new design:
