The bus trap at the north end of Centre Street also has a gate beside it, but more often than not the gate seems to be broken down and is stuck in the raised position.City administration recommends removing Calgary's last remaining bus traps: https://calgaryherald.com/news/loca...=Social&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1656801788
Yup and I've snuck through there a few times because there's no camera. And I would do it againThe bus trap at the north end of Centre Street also has a gate beside it, but more often than not the gate seems to be broken down and is stuck in the raised position.
I remember when they installed that one, was annoying coming from Airdrie since Beddington was the closest co-op and that is where my mom shopped for groceries. Still shops at co-op but more convenient with one in Airdrie.Yup and I've snuck through there a few times because there's no camera. And I would do it again
Seriously though I would like for that centre street bus trap to be open during off peak times. It only causes annoyance to everyone who wants to go north to the retail up in Country Hills
I get the logic of the bus traps not always working as intended (e.g. a car gets stuck so even a bus can't cross), but I would be curious on the impact to relative competitiveness for transit if we just got rid of them all, in particular the Centre Street one. This one probably does make buses slightly more travel-time competitive from the north.I really hope Centre Street connects through to Harvest Hill Blvd now, so stupid to not allow traffic through there. The people at the north end of Centre St will probably fight it though.
I'm confident that the green line will be finished around the same time we are achieving lightspeed space travel to other universes, but certainly not before that.The green line should alleviate any concerns about speed of busses, when it's finished in 2048 lol
