Calgary Transit Sucks!

The flood of… 2015? | 06/30/2015

Five minutes…
That’s how much it rained, downtown today around 4:15pm.
Just five minutes.
Granted, some of the drops were the size of grapes, but it was just FIVE MINUTES…

Jumping on the C-Train southbound, we stopped at 39th Ave station, only to have the announcement that “due to flooding, we will be turning the train back; shuttle buses to Heritage Station will be running shortly.”

Really, Calgary Transit?
You can’t even handle FIVE MINUTES of heavy rain?
Are there no backup plans for tunnel floods?
No special drainage pumps – either into the sewer, or up onto the surrounding streets?

Does the idea of wasting (God only knows how much!) your citizens’ time, energy & the City’s economic well-being for an hour or two of rush-hour disruption (immediately preceding a Holiday, no less!), not make you think that a dozen or so industrial pumps, set up for just such an occasion, would be a better tactic?

It’s been a year since my last post here; I’ve been trying to stay positive about the system… but the system sucks, and nobody is getting that into their heads.

Do you have to have blinders on to rise to the executive floor of the CT Head Office?

…oh, and about those ‘shuttle buses’… I walked from 39th to Heritage, and not a single bus passed me (on Macleod, at least… I concede they may have taken Barlow Trail – but that would mean CT was thinking of their customers’ convenience, which of course, could never happen…)

… CT Sucks…

  1. You also gotta love how they don’t tell anyone about delays when they do happen too
