Bob Ransford just posted this:
When the Canada Line was being planned more than 15 years ago, the public was shown ridership models that said 70% of the ridership would be in the portion of the corridor between Waterfront Station and Oakridge Station.
Reality today is crush loads during rush hour from Richmond Brighouse all the way to Waterfront with lines at many VANCOUVER stations where crush-filled trains can’t accept more riders and near full loads at all hours just within Richmond alone. They got it wrong.
Transit drives housing development. So much for empty condos. Empty condos don’t drive this kind of heavy ridership.
