Skytrain issues....AGAIN

are they ever going to fix this system?

SkyTrain: Service Disruptions. SkyTrain Major Jul 21 2014
12:32:PM
Due to a technical issue at Skytrain, there are significant delays impacting the Expo & Millennium Line trains. It is also impacting our ability to communicate to passengers in train cars or platforms. We are working hard to resolve this issue. For those passengers in the trains, please stay in the cars until instructed. Thank-you for your patience.

Please contact us at 604-953-3333 if you require route planning assistance.

here is a pic taken 10mins ago.... people on the frickin tracks trying to get off the stuck trains.

Were those people told to get off the train and go on the tracks? If not then that's pretty dumb of them. If they were told to do that then Translink is out of their fucking minds for that.

I don't ride transit all that much anymore, aside from the ocasional seabus ride. When I used to transit to school it the skytrain and busses were pretty reliable. I was late maybe once or twice in two years due to their disruptions...

EDIT: Wow those people just decided to hop onto the live rails without any instructions, proof that one retard really can lead a crowd of people.

From another article:

Quote:
This is the second time in five days that there has been a system-wide hold on the SkyTrain. The previous incident was blamed on a ‘massive computer glitch’. TransLink says the issue was “exacerbated by passengers who illegally walked onto [the] guideway.”

Except it was the newer skytrain that comes with AC is what those people walked out of...

unless of course AC cut out with the communication system

transit not even once

Yeah...

Let's walk out onto the path of an unmanned, computer-controlled train.
...When the train stopped because of a computer problem.

Translink shut down power on all the tracks and their employees went to open the doors to guide them back to the nearest station.

According to VanCityBuzz:

Major SkyTrain shutdown due to technical issues

Quote:
SkyTrain attendants are also walking along the tracks to stopped trains, opening car doors and guiding passengers safely towards the nearest station.

Attendants were walking out to trains and safely letting people off.

Edit: INB4 Translink wants to up the taxes to "upgrade their computer systems from 1986 Expo System."

Man, translink is really fcking up big time.

I was stuck on the skytrain a month ago for 30 minutes. luckily there was A/C. but I can just imagine being stuck there next to some guy with huge B/O sticking his arms up holding onto the railing bars and armpits pointing your way. People need to use deodorant.

My biggest fear is having a strong urge to take a shit while riding the skytrain and it shuts down in between stations. #theshitIhavetodealwith
