Translink fare review

Translink is doing a fare review of how we pay our fares in vancouver and they are considering eliminating the fare zones and instead having a fare by distance fare.    The problem with having a distance by fare instead of fare zones: is the price to take transit for commuters from North Vancouver is going up:  if a commuter is going from north vancouver to production way university station or lougheed town centre, there’s 14 stops total if you go from waterfront to commercial and transfer to the Millennium line.   If you take the expo line around new west to those stations it’s considerably more money.   $140-172/month.    To get to production way university and lougheed town centre has always only been a 2 zone fare and or a 2 zone bus pass for : $126.00/month.

I dont think it is really fare to jack up our prices to take transit , it actually makes transit users use cars instead of transit when they change the system..    this distance by fare system is wrong and overcharges riders.  It’s confusing and hard to follow with how it would work with 90 minute time based compass tickets.

I urge everyone to go on translinks website and do the fare review survey as in the link I’ve pasted, say no to a distance by fare.  Let’s convince translink to keep the current fare zone system as is.

also in the comments section at the end of the survey urge translink  to have a fare system like the ttc in toronto which costs $146.00/month they have no zones however for the $146.00 you can take the ttc to where ever the ttc goes I’ve posted the ttc fare passses page with how much a monthly pass costs to ride entire ttc.   If translinks monthly pass was $146.00/month to ride the whole sky train and rav line it would make the system fare, as riders would be able to go to surrey, Richmond, north van, bby, conquitlam, all on one fare for $146.00


Jobs for teachers from Serbia

I saw that teachers from Serbia are wanted in China,USA and Japan. Some Chinese and Japanese schools looks for English teachers from Serbia. Schools in the USA look for Math teachers. I checked on Internet what teachers say about jobs in China and Japan. Some of them were scammed by agencies which looks for teachers. Others are not satisfied. I don’t know if I should go teaching outside of Serbia. I should firstly learn language spoken in area where I go. I must know educational system in the country where I work. Some people go to work in other countries without thinking. They read or hear about good salaries in some countries and don’t think about living, safety, conditions of work there.
