Evidence of the contrast between Vancouver’s public transport and Britains’.

There are “problems” described within this article that i never even noticed  when I spent time in Vancouver because, in comparison to Britain, these problems are what i’d call “nit-picking”. If you look at it; “nit-picking” is a pretty good stage to be at. Vancouverites with disabilities/mobility problems can now nit-pick at an “accessible public transit system” whilst us Brits haven’t even got to that stage yet! We are still moaning, groaning and fighting to get the most basic and yet central and vital transit systems to even have the minimum accessibility that is required…this shows, not only, that more things can always be done to improve accessibility, but it also exposes how backward and inward looking, those in charge of the British public transport system, really are.
