As someone who provides assistance on the streets of Downtown Vancouver, I’m seeing more traffic congestion and pedestrian accidents. Better transit would reduce congestion, and help make our streets safer. I particularly see a need for more buses, which are often crowded – especially during the summer when people are enjoying our local beaches. I’m voting Yes because a 25% increase is bus capacity throughout the region will make Downtown more livable to residents, and more enjoyable for visitors. It will be beneficial to both drivers and those who use public transit.

Hear why Yasmine is also voting Yes.
