Tony Hoar knows bicycling from every point of view: Tour de France veteran, engineer and respected builder of bicycles and trailers, present-day Master's-level competitor, and well-known British Columbia cycling events coordinator and bicycling advocate.
I've always had a guilty conscience about the fact that I drive to work. I've always had the excuse of picking my daughter up from daycare as my crutch for why I don't take the bus that stops a couple blocks from my house and drops me off a 10 minute walk from work TO WORK. But my daycare situation has changed and I don't have to rush to pick the kids up from daycare so I CAN take transit.
It's been a while since I've touched bases with the ChangeEverything community, but I realized today that what I've been busy with is exactly what this community is for, and I feel silly for not coming back here earlier.
I want Translink to be accountable to its ridership. The price of public transit is not on par with the service we receive at all. Hardest hit are those in poverty, through all are affected. It's time for change.
