Tales from the Transit Line

Report from the Morning Commute:

What was once a few small steps for commuters, has lead to one giant leap for Translink.

The BC transportation authority has accepted an RFP from The Man in the Moon contracting firm to fix the up escalator at the Commercial-Broadway SkyTrain station.

The fixture has been out of order since May. When asked via Twitter by a TFTTL reporter why it was taking so long to fix it, a Translink spokesperson noted they were waiting for parts to arrive.

Since the average distance from Earth to the Moon is 384,400 km (238,900 mi), it is expected the escalator will be fixed by Christmas – that is, according to our calculations.

Blessing from the Morning Commute:

May the escalator at your transfer station never be broke down – ever, let alone for a week – when the only alternative to reach your platform is three flights of stairs.
