It is an absolute gong show out there no matter what mode of normal transportation one takes. With the massive increase in bus passengers, buses are running late and leaving passengers behind at bus stops. Chartering a helicopter would be the fastest way to get across the Fraser River. I know every little bit helps but seriously what are four more additional trains shuttling between Scott Road and Waterfront stations to ease the pressure during rush hourtrains going to do? Basically nothing considering those trains should be commencing and terminating at King George Station. The lack of any quick response plan shows the public that if something similar like this happens during the Olympics, we're screwed.
For starters, the N19 should be going 24 hours until this mess is fixed. This 4:30 am start for Skytrain is ridiculous because it is only 38 minutes earlier than normal and there are no buses starting earlier to get people to the Surrey area stations for the earlier trains. Start the trains at 3:45 with area buses even earlier and translink better work out a deal to get some more parking around Skytrain stations. On the news, the Massey tunnel's counterflow lane is to start at 5:00 am and that too should start earlier like 4:00 and go until 10:00. Then for the evening commute, begin it at 2:30 and go until 8:00 pm.
