How will TransLink save itself after the Olympics?

January 21st, 2010 · 13 Comments

The TransLink story the last year has been a regular soap opera (ok, municipal version): mayors band together to pressure provincial government for more sources of funding, complete with news conferences and various other tactics; province makes many snarky remarks about operations of TransLink spending and orders a review; CEO, freshly recruited from New York, abruptly quits and goes back to New York; TransLink mayors reluctantly pass a status-quo spending plan that does no more than keep the existing system going.

They kind of faded from view as that rolled to a close last October. So I hiked out to Metrotown this week to find out whether they’re going to take another run at the provincial citadel, whether they’ve launched a hunt for a new CEO, and whether we all just have to hang onto our bus straps for now because there’s no new money in sight.

Here were some of the answers.
