Waited with a female friend for her #26 bus at Kerr and 49th from 11:15pm to after midnight on Monday night. No buses running either direction. We got off #49 and would be just in time for the #26, but we didn't see another #49 going same fdirection till 12:15 am when she finally got on it as an alternative way to get home. She had to walk halfway home coz #49 doesn't reach her home like #26 would. At around midnight, a dude told us that he walked from 29th Ave STN because #26 buses stopped running since 9pm and he had to walk his way home.
When my friend and I called translink during our waitin g time to see when the bus would come, it told us the normal time but mentioned little or nothing about expecting delays. I can understand how buses can't get up hills and icy roads, but how about giving us updates on bus routes when we call Translink instead of just telling us to expect delays?
I didn't have to wait coz I lived 2 blocks away from that bus stop, but my female friend needed to get home and I wasn't to make her walk in the dark... Thankfully she didn't get mugged or harassed during her walk after getting off #49 bus halfway through her journey home, but what if shething happened to her just coz she couldn't take the normal bus that would've dropped her off right in front of her house?
