TransLink 101: welcome to our February special post series!

TransLink 101 blog feature series banner

We’re doing something different on the Buzzer blog in 2013!

Each month this year, we’ll take a topic and explore it through a series of special blog posts. (Though don’t worry, we’ll still post about other content too!)

For our first month, we’ve decided to go back to basics with a series we’d like to call TransLink 101!

What’s TransLink 101 about?

This month, we’ll explore some basic questions about TransLink and its work that many of you might be wondering about. Our planned topics include:

As well, we’d also like to feature an article that YOU pick!

What do you want us to write about?

Is there a burning TransLink question you’ve always wanted the answer to? Suggest your topic in the comments!

From your suggestions, we’ll select five that sound doable, and then everyone can vote for the winner in a poll at the end of this week end of next week, so we can gather more submissions! (And you never know — you might see the runners-up in future posts too :) Edit: We didn’t end up running a poll because we didn’t receive very many suggestions! So never mind.

If you need some inspiration, here are some articles we’ve done in the past:

Ok – suggest away! We hope you enjoy the series!

    great idea! I think reason and knowledge is the best way to win hearts and minds.

    I think number one should be what TransLink is responsible for. I’ve heard way too many drivers complain about having to pay (gas/parking tax) TransLink – they still think that TransLink is only about public transit. They’re not subsidizing buses, they’re paying for the roads they’re driving on.

    Bonus if you can get this series picked up by local media, as most drivers aren’t likely to show up here.

    How about writing about an average transit commute from sechelt? To vancouver? A lot of ppl do it!
