Road Closures

Well, the Olympic Games are nearing at unbelievable speed and the effects of the Games are being seen far and wide. Like the Canucks' Olympic Break. Or all of these foreign news stations suddenly talking about Vancouver. Or the major road closures all over downtown. Which is particularly what I want to write about.

Check out this link.

It's going to be hectic in the city during the Olympic Games. But it's not like we didn't know that already. I guess that's what you can expect when an event this large comes into town. What is not so ordinary is the fact that it's going to be nearly impossible to get anywhere in your own vehicle. You'll have to rely on public transportation a lot more often if you want to get to the Games. Will P.T. be an efficient and a relatively rapid way to get into Vancouver during the 2010 Olympic
Games? We'll just have to wait and see. What do you think?

  1. I think that if there's no room on the road for personal cars then the busses aren't going to be all that much better. But if everyone takes public transit, then the roads should stay fairly clear. So in order for this to happen, everyone will have to be on board, which is going to be tricky, but I think we will work something out. As for sea bus and sky train, I think they will be the fastest, most reliable way to travel during the Games.
