Credit Check: The Province thinks a 1.2% fare evasion rate is ridiculously high
-10 The Province runs a story that quotes an unnamed bus driver who figures that fare evasion is $2 milllion more than currently assumed. Ooooh $2 million! Translink takes in $370 million in fares every year. If, as the driver says, fare evasion is a loss of $4.38 million annually, that’s 1.2% of the budget. 1.2 per cent! Why worry about it – what attempts could one do to force people who obviously can’t afford bus fare thtat would not cost more?
-1 People are accidentally calling 911 instead of India because the country code is 91. Globalisation is funny.
+1 311 is great but poorly promoted. Probably because people are calling the Netherlands instead (+31).
+25 The return of Wally’s Burgers. Our long municipal nightmare is over.
