TransLink Annual General Meeting for 2010 – a recap

It was a wet and rainy one today, but the public, TransLink staff and the Board of Directors braved the elements and filled the gymnasium at Creekside Community Centre for TransLink’s Annual General Meeting for 2010 this morning. 2010 was an exciting and challenging year for TransLink, and the public asked questions about funding, student cards and transit routes among other topics. The meeting was live on the Internet as a webcast. Thanks to everyone who participated online and in person! Please follow this link If you’d like to see a recording of the AGM along with the corresponding slideshow (you’ll have to register to see everything if you didn’t already do so for the live webinar). If you’d just like to watch the video of the event without the slides,  you can do so below:

    Here’s somw ideas from Sweden on how to spruce up those drag Canada Line stations!

    I doubt they’ll go that far (too bad) but I think the Expo Line stations should get an upgrade first ’cause they’ve been around a lot longer. I wish the stations would get more colorful as they feel either drab or institutional the way they are.

    Stockholm’s cavernous stations are eye-catching, but once the novelty has worn off I do find them a bit dark and oppressive. Oslo’s underground stations go little further than coloured tiles, but while they aren’t going to win any architectural awards, they’re more pleasant places to wait for a train.

    Incidentally, the rocky walls of those stations aren’t just someone’s idea of what ‘underground’ is like. Much of the Stockholm area is built on hard rock, and so the tunnels are alternately carved and blasted, rather than being built by tunnelling machines like in most cities.

    What someone realised was that instead of going to a lot of effort to build smooth walls inside those caverns, they could finish it off and have something unlike anywhere else. The main-line railway stations out at the airport are in the same style, as are some of the city’s highway tunnels.

    I don’t know I rather like how the Expo Line stations are. At least they have SEATS (I’m looking at you, Millenium and Canada Line).

    @ Joe

    I think that all stations have seats. I remember seeing some at Waterfront Station and Lougheed Station.

    I meant more seats than the two per platform (sometimes 4 if you’re REALLY lucky) at the Millenium/Canada stations. The old stations can have as many as 12 seats, like at Metrotown, but you can bet if they built Metrotown today it’d have 1 seat… if we were lucky.
