Okay, we haven’t even started on the major projects for this 10-year plan (Broadway subway, Surrey LRT, new Pattullo Bridge).
But that doesn’t mean people aren’t thinking about the 10 years after that already. I was at a transportation conference at the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade last Friday where, as moderator, I got to ask all the transit/transportation nerd questions I wanted. Plus some from my Twitter followers.
Something that came up more than once in the back and forth was: What’s next? (Prompted considerably by discussion this past week of a possible new transit crossing to the North Shore, raised by NV City Mayor Darrell Mussatto.) CEO Kevin Desmond said they’re starting to plan for the inevitable next wave already, so it’s not too soon for YOU to start thinking.
I put that question out to Twitter followers afterward — what do you want to see next? It was fun to see the responses. Here are some of them.
