The Downtown Vancouver BIA is a strong supporter of the Yes vote in the upcoming transportation plebiscite. There are many individual downtown Vancouver business owners/operators who are also saying ‘yes’ to better transit and transportation:
My staff members rely on transit to get to work, and the West Coast Express is particularly important for employees who commute from the Fraser Valley. More trains would give them flexibility in their work schedule – particularly on evenings and weekends. Also, more trains would encourage visitors from the Valley to come Downtown and enjoy the entertainment we have to offer. I’m voting Yes because staying with the status quo is not a viable option; our population is growing, and transit is already over-crowded. Half a percent on the sales tax is a worthwhile expense, given the return on investment.
