Vancouver transit not up 2010 requirements

By Greg Heakes (AFP)

While many Vancouverites say they are heading out of town during the Games to escape the crowds those that hope to take in the action are being asked to leave their cars at home and join the visitors on public transit.

The only venue that will have public parking is the University of British Columbia ice hockey rink, the site of some of the preliminary hockey games.

Organizers say they have added extra public buses, but it remains to be seen how Vancouver’s tiny rapid transit trains (SkyTrain) and its often disfunctional public bus system will handle Olympic-size crowds.
