“I live close to UBC and work downtown. I think for everyone affected – not only the directly involved with UBC such as students and staff- the transit improvement would be a triumph because EVERYONE will win, even nature. For someone like me, rapid transit will mean a more effective, less crowded, more reliable, and less polluting commute. For a rapidly-growing city like Vancouver it is not a matter of wanting but needing this type of transit. When thinking of the future, rapid transit is the only solution to move the growing population. Buses may have been practical in the past but now they are crowded, unreliable, and polluting machines. I live in fear during the winter when a little snow can paralyze our transit. I also detest the smell of diesel. No matter the angle, rapid transit seems logical.”
