It would be exactly like the zone system we have now. The bus ticket is 1 zone, so when you hop onto a Skytrain that requires 2 zones, you pay a small additional fee to bump your ticket up to 2 zones.

At least, that's what I'd expect.

That would make sense but with Translink you just don't know what to expect.

On the translink website they said they will make it up to the monthly pass holders as well.

I'm assuming a discount on next month's pass if you own a current pass.

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

Because people kept bitching how someone they know got a free ride without paying. You can't have it both ways, much like Transit cops.

Writing laws is always cheap.. the expensive part is enforcement.. that's why Conservatives are writing laws but cutting back in environmental, taxes etc.

Come on guys, it's only going to cost you an extra $250 on average a year to vote Yes. $250 a year to get this huge upside is worth it imo.

That Yes vote would go a long way. Yeah, translink fucked up. Well we gotta live with it. Jimmy Pattison is going to look after the finances, he was the single reason why I voted Yes.

If you've ever drove in rush hour, you should vote yes. We need the infrastructure and it has to come from somewhere.

Jimmy Pattison HAVE 0 POWER. He is only there to advise not to actually run the finances. So translink and the mayors could just say no to what he suggested and there is nothing he can do.

How about taxing big corps and business instead? Want to build apartments close to skytrains? Sure it will cost you more.

I rather spend that $250 and bet on Canucks winning the Stanely Cup every year. Canucks have a higher chance of winning the cup than translink will use money effectively.
