Transportation expert Todd Litman’s suggested solution to reducing tunnel traffic by implementing small tolls would obviously only cause even more congestion on the East/West Connector and Alex Fraser Bridge during peak periods.

Would his suggestion then be to also begin to charge tolls on the Alex Fraser Bridge?

Creating increased and enhanced public transportation options is an excellent strategy to provide more options for some segments of the travelling public, however, many occupations and lifestyles require personal vehicles to carry out daily life and responsibilities.

To penalize this segment of people for having different occupational and personal needs than other people, who only need to go from point A to point B, seems unfair.

There really has to be a holistic understanding and consideration of the various segments of the travelling public to implement transportations policies that are beneficial, fair and equitable to everyone.
