I have just moved to an apartment on Rumble Street at McKay Avenue. I’m one of many who were asked to move from our low-cost apartments so the developers could build new highrises.
It took me nearly 10 months to finally find a place that I could afford.
One thing that was crucial to the move was good bus service, but after five weeks of living here, I have been left at bus stops along with other passengers because the bus was too full. Three time buses have not even arrived.
They are the small buses. I have called and sent emails to TransLink (about this).
There have been three new buildings along Rumble Street and each building is the same as the one I am in.
So, if a lot of these are using the bus system, we will be having this problem until they increase the buses or go to the bigger buses.
