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.‬‪

    Multiple wbound #84 busses passed up at Oly Vill Stn this am. Please… if TransLink is going to suggest this route as an alternative to the #99… the peak period service needs to increase

    And off peak too, it’s sad that the 84 ends so early on Saturday and Sunday…

    The #84 used to be the best kept secret since day one, I guess people finally caught on that it’s way faster and just as convenient as the #99.

    Wonder if anyone was riding the #99 B-Line at 9 am on 09/09/09 just because? :)
