A letter writer slams TranLink for its bus transfer plan.

TransLink transfer decision a fiasco

In short, casual users of the transit system will be double-billed if the journey has to continue on SkyTrain.

It is astounding, that in an age where public transit is deemed successful on its affordability and ease of use, TransLink and its management once again prove the Peter Principle with one of its most incompetent decisions yet, that bus transfers will not work on SkyTrain and Canada Line trains and one must purchase another fare.

In short, casual users of the transit system will be double-billed if the journey has to continue on SkyTrain. It is beyond belief.

If the minister in charge of TransLink does not fire top management for this sheer incompetence, the premier needs to fire the minister in charge for allowing such incompetence to continue. And while top TransLink management should be terminated immediately, the equally incompetent board of amateurs that oversees TransLink should be fired as well for allowing the transfer fiasco to happen.

The Peter Principle is a proposition that states that the members of an organization where promotion is based on achievement, success, and merit will eventually be promoted beyond their level of ability.

It seems everyone who works at TransLink is promoted far beyond their abilities.
