Frozen wires delay Vancouver trolley buses

Vancouver Sun

TransLink staff once again demonstrates their collective incompetence by not watching weather forecasts, causing havoc.

Commuters were late for work and school Wednesday morning as trolley bus service was delayed for several hours after power wires froze overnight.

Translink said commuters faced the long delays because the company didn’t look at Tuesday’s short-term weather forecast that stated sub-zero temperatures overnight and because the only available de-icing truck it had broke down.

Specifically, the #19 and the #10 trolley bus service experienced the most delays this morning.

Snider said the de-icing truck was “scrambled” late Tuesday night but because of a mechanical malfunction it couldn’t remove the ice from the wires.
