The Party's over, the Circus has left town, and Translink is hiking monthly transit passes.
Case in point, One Zone passes are going from $73 up to $81 dollars a month on April Fools Day.
Which means that if you don't have a bridge to cross and you are trying to do the right thing every single day, you will be paying almost a hundred bucks extra to be a good citizen next year.
And if you are a family of four you'll be paying four times as much.
Which, especially if you are a family of modest income, is a pretty significant increase.
Except, according to Translink spokesthingy Drew Snider, and occasional blogger, it is not.
An increase I mean.
Because, according to the good Mr. Snider at least, it is actually a 'decrease' on the 'discount' that you receive every time you buy a monthly pass.
I'm telling you.....
There oughta be a special place in the sloughs of Sliverville for shillophants that screw people over with their own money.
After all, it is the good people of British Columbia, the people who are paying that 'decrease' on the 'discount', who also pay the good Mr. Snider's salary is it not?
