As the hub for many of our transit services, Waterfront Station is constantly busy, and here are a few tidbits and photos from a visit with the transit hosts there at around 1:30 p.m.
- The most frequently asked question today: Where’s the Olympic flame? (Over at the Vancouver Convention Centre, out the station entrance and to your right :)
- Unsurprisingly, lots of people were also asking for directions to Olympic venues, especially which bus to take to Pacific Coliseum (the 135 on Hastings St, one block south, heading east!)
- Riders were flowing pretty easily through the station at this time – the passenger levels were really quite manageable before the 2 p.m. rush hour start.
And here’s a few more photos from the early afternoon.
Dave was behind the wheel of the 50 False Creek, and I asked him if he had been meeting lots of tourists. The answer was no, because it was his first Olympic shift on the 50 route — but he had signed up for the 50 just so he could meet some visitors to the region. The 50 False Creek heads past Granville Island, one of the most popular tourist destinations in Vancouver, so I’m sure Dave will meet plenty of folks :)
