Today I posted:
It’s time to start asking. What are the counts of toll-paying traffic compared to what was expected and what is needed for the bridge to pay its way?
Fast response. Kyle picked up on some numbers I missed:
Numbers have already been released apparently, but we can’t always trust media on these things: News 1130 report here.
“200,000 fewer vehicles crossed the new Port Mann in February than went over the old bridge at the same time last year.” While transit “ridership last month was estimated at 38,000. That’s up from 23,000 in December” .
Still, what does that mean for the economics of the bridge?
