I do not usually put transit stuff on this blog - but I liked this video but Wordpress is not happy with this embedded flash video
We were going to have something like this - we called it Richmond RapidBus - but it died the death of thousand cuts against intransigence from the City of Vancouver and a small but vocal band of citizens. The Province of BC likes promising this to outer suburbs who want SkyTrain but do not (in the MoT's) view justify that and something like this might happen in Surrey. Eventually.
I really liked listening to the Parisian engineer explaining why it works the way it does - all in plain English which is something most North American engineers cannot manage
