    Kind of off topic, but I am actually surprised to hear Canada Line was rated for clean service. Canada Line train smells like wet dogs in the winter and smells like mens changing room in a gym during the summer.

    I don’t know if there is no ventilation system for Canada Line rolling stocks, but Expo/Millennium trains do not get as smelly as Canada Line.

    Canada Line air conditioning is great in the tunnel. Outside of the tunnel? It’s useless.

    No complaints about CLine odours, but wish there was more escalators (aging population) and less nickel in the chrome bars that gives some users allergies.

    Canada Line seriously needs more seating on each platform. 2 seats per platform? Who thought that was a good idea? I see old people fighting each other over who gets the seat cause there aren’t any. Same issue the Millenium Line has, where people sit on the ground cause there’s nowhere else to sit.

    More poles and straps on aisle.

    The tunnel between Olympic Village and Yaletown seldom have sewer-like smell. From time to time, Can Line trains in DT have smelly air blowing from AC, though the smell is not as bad as other cities with older subway systems.

    C-Line is great; however, speed can be increased as trains in other cities travel at a much higher speed

    While it might be a technical limitation based on the C-line technology, I agree it would be great to see if something could be done to increase train speeds during longer stretches on the c-line. It seems to travel much slower along straight segments than the e and m-line.

    Ken, the smells must come from you. I never notice the smells you claim are on the Canada Line. I ride at various times of the day due to my work schedule, and have never noticed them.

    As there is room for at least 30 extra seats on each platform, I fully agree that more seats be installed for people waiting for the train.
