Ridership Rising on Canada Line

The new Canada Line rail service that links downtown Vancouver to the airport has seen steadily increasing ridership since its opening in August.

"Daily Canada Line ridership has occasionally topped 100,000, which is the break-even threshold for the system covering its operating costs. That level comes about three years ahead of schedule.

Including weekends, the Canada Line is averaging 92,852 riders a day, said Steve Crombie, spokesman for InTransitBC, builder and operator of the system.

'The trend is increasing. We've been seeing weekly increases since the line started,' he said."

The Globe and Mail calls it one of the things making British Columbia better.
