Let's build on our streetcar legacy!

Let's not forget that the Vancouver we know and love, with its many unique neighbourhoods, evolved thanks to our old streetcar network. 

In designing transit for the future, let's ensure that we maintain and and enhance that legacy of unique, livable neighbourhoods. We should service the old streetcar corridors with frequent bus service, rather than condensing Vancouver's transit to a few supercorridors. Such a move risks dramatically changing our city into something more akin to the 1960s technocrat vision of a freeway city, which Vancouverites thankfully stopped in its tracks, preserving beautiful neighbourhoods like Strathcona and Chinatown that otherwise would have been obliterated.
