9am-ish transit update for Wed Sept 9

9am-ish transit update for Wed Sept 9

The latest from Drew:

OK … Canada Line peak time appears to be over at BRIDGEPORT, but there may still be some heavy loads out of RICHMOND-BRIGHOUSE.‬‪ ‬‪

Please remember that there are other ways of getting to UBC besides the 99 B-Line:‬‪‪#41 & #43 (from Oakridge-41st Ave)‬‪#25 & #33 (from King Edward)‬‪#84 (from Olympic Village)‬‪ ‬‪

99B-Line is currently experiencing heavy loads, but “empty” buses are going into service, picking up people from Clark Drive westward.‬‪ ‬‪

The lineup at COMMERCIAL-BROADWAY is snaking out onto the Commercial Drive sidewalk, but it’s staying orderly, thanks in part to the line management efforts by Transit Police and Coast Mountain Bus Co. supervisors and utility drivers.  Thanks to the people who sent out free coffee, too. ‬‪ ‬‪

PRODUCTION WAY had a bit of a peak in the past 45 minutes, but has settled down somewhat.  Very few people if any getting left behind by the #145 bus.‬‪ ‬‪

WEST COAST EXPRESS experienced no problems at all.‬‪
