Lower Mainland Transit
We are getting connected.
The Canada line has reached their goal of over 100,000 riders per day and at that, 3 YEARS early!! Currently in July there were 106,000 (approximately) riders on the Canadian Line Monday to Friday. So, BC if you build it they will come! We are highly anticipating the Evergreen line, with all the talk about it we are ready to see the start of construction. With the gas prices reaching $1.19 today, I think British Columbia is sure to have the same response with the new Evergreen line as they did for the Canadian Line. Well our administrative assistant comes into our Coquitlam office from Vancouver everyday and she will be thrilled when it’s finished.
So when are we going to see the construction? Well it is anticipated to start early 2011, however with all the planning, and environmental studies the government needs to do; we all know they will probably start late as per usual but it’s better late than never. It will be a fast, frequent line, which will take you from the Lougheed Town Centre to the Coquitlam Centre in 13 minutes! AMAZING!
So my question is, like London England, Will driving to work become a thing of the past?
For us once the new line has started construction we suspect we will be doing a lot of business in all the areas that have purposed stations, as it will most definitely become more popular due to the convenience.
