UPDATED: An update on the Fourth Plain BRT project
UPDATE: The Vancouver City Council last night approved the project, voting to support a mixed traffic configuration (with both center and median stops), extending out to NW 121st. Older content after the jump.
The interfaces between different transit agencies
Travelling between transit agencies, especially for trips located within a metro area, can be an inconvenient experience for many reasons. Timetables may not be aligned, fare policies may be hostile (requiring additional tickets as one crosses the agency boundary), different agencies often run vastly different equipment, and interchange points are often on the periphery of a service area. Is it possible, even given tight budgets, to do better for the transit rider.
