Vancouver improve city buses – CNW Group – TRANSPORT CANADA

88 Blocks – Art on Main, an investment in Vancouver’s transportation infrastructure to enhance one of the City’s oldest
and busiest transit corridors, was launched today. Andrew Saxton, MP for North Vancouver and Parliamentary Secretary to the President of the Treasury Board,
attended the launch of the first art showcase for the Main Street Transit and Pedestrian Priority Project.
“The Government of Canada is investing in public transit projects that will improve commuting times,” said MP Saxton. “This federal contributio shows that we can deliver results that are good for our public transit users, create jobs, and boost our economy.”
The $6M Main Street Transit and Pedestrian Priority Project will improve service reliability, reduce travel times and bus delays, shorten pedestrian crossing times, and improve pedestrian and cyclist safety. The public art is just one of many measures in a broad package of improvements.
