Tales from the Transit Line

Report from the Evening Commute:

Although it has had annual revenues hover the billion dollar mark and it operates approximately 201 stores around the world – not everyone knows about Lululemon Athletica.

A young commuter, on his way through downtown Vancouver, the West Coast city where the yoga-inspired athletic apparel company is based, today, admitted that he was one of them.

“I don’t know what ‘lululemon’ means,” he said.

When offered an explanation, he added, unconvinced, “I haven’t seen or heard of it. It could mean a lot of things.”

Blessing from the Morning Commute:

On a cold, rainy day, may you always get a seat next to the heater, while you ride the bus. And may it not get turned off halfway through your commute.

Namaste.

Report from the Evening Commute:

A phrase has been coined by a commuter, that is expected to be added to the urban lexicon.

“That’s so bus driver,” can be used to describe someone who is being especially rude or discourteous.

“It’s like, when someone cuts in front of you in line or they take the last donut in the box – ‘that’s so bus driver’,” explained a TFTTL reporter.

The new phrase is predicted to be especially popular among everyone.

Public Service Announcement from the Morning Commute:

Tired of missing your bus or feeling more like a sardine than a commuter?

You have a chance to vote for better public transit in the BC election today.

The BC New Democrats say they will re-direct millions in carbon tax revenue to increase funding for public transit and improve service as a practical response to climate change.

The choice is yours, but the results for public transit over the last 12 years under the BC Liberals is clear – there are no more buses.
