TransLink is switching to a one-zone fare at all times on buses as the solution that will allow it to roll out its long-delayed Compass card to the entire transit system.
It means a price drop of at least $1.25 for regular riders who now pay for two or three zones on certain bus routes that cross zone boundaries. That could add up to $554 a year for riders of two-zone routes over the Fraser from Surrey, and up to $948 per year for riders of certain three-zone routes to Vancouver from the Tri Cities.
TransLink will move to one-zone only fares for all buses, end tap out requirement, to solve smart card problems

RCMP say a six-month investigation last year uncovered 1,228 incidents of B.C. residents illegally sharing "troubling" child pornography, including photos and videos of child sexual abuse, using peer-to-peer networks.

Some Metro Vancouver mayors are willing to cut or eliminate the Transit Police service to redirect money to expand core bus service.
But others say chopping cops is a bad strategy to deal with TransLink's cash crunch after voters defeated a 0.5 per cent sales tax for transit expansion.

Disgusted drivers can be excused for thinking the era of cheap energy prices has somehow bypassed B.C. Gas prices have barely budged from a year ago despite a more than 50 per cent plunge in crude oil prices. 
Blame U.S. refineries, low loonie for the persistent pain at the pumps in B.C.

A TransLink job posting indicates the next CEO is to be offered the same $319,000 base salary as former CEO Ian Jarvis, as well as other identical benefits, including a contentious bonus that was supposed to have been scrapped.
But it's unclear whether the transportation authority's board can actually hire a new CEO at that salary without the approval of Metro Vancouver mayors, who have indicated before they want to reduce executive compensation levels.

The province is being urged to create a property tax surcharge targeting only foreign and absentee owners in response to rising fears about housing affordability as Metro Vancouver land prices soar.
Three professors at UBC's Sauder School of Business argue a surcharge on property tax levied by the province could exempt all Canadian-owned primary residences and rented units.
UBC profs say levy could target only foreign-owned homes, revenue could fund rental subsidies, break for first-time buyers

Such a levy could also go towards TransLink. Different levels of property taxation are applied in other jurisdictions, such as Florida.
