Well that's all they have currently installed at the stations I have seen. So they aren't going with anything more hardcore than that so far.

The next logical step up from these are the full size turnstiles like New York has in many places:



God damn these things make the place look depressing, and also if you have luggage impossible to walk through. At least with the waist high things you can lift your luggage over it or whatever.

Snape looks unamused.

Back, somewhat, on topic, Compass is a good idea; the follow-through is what's terrible. I've never seen such a waste of tax-payer money. Every time I have to take transit, it's just a constant reminder of the fuck-up of an implimentation.

if you can hop it, it probably won't go beep beep beep. at least compass doors are somewhat bigger and harder to jump. the ones in that video can easily be done without effort.

however, i highly doubt there is anything stopping anyone with some strength to simply push it open.

Translink is a bloody joke. This thread will still be full of posts about skytrains issues even if a transit tax comes into effect to expand the system.

This organization is a black hole which sucks in tax dollars with very little to show for it.

-heard some kids complain about Skytrain today after telling their buddies that they do not ever pay the fare.

^^ that's why I am voting no. Clean up the current system with your current fundings first before more funds are given out.
