Statement attributable to TransLink CEO Kevin Desmond on funding

Statement attributable to TransLink CEO Kevin Desmond:

“We very much welcome today’s transit funding announcement and thank our provincial and federal government partners for providing this vitally important funding relief. The $644 million package will greatly assist TransLink by covering the substantial net revenue losses we are currently incurring as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“The funding recognizes that transit is an essential service and will enable us to continue delivering reliable service levels for our region in support of BC’s Safe Restart, particularly over the coming months as our economy gradually reopens and our customers return to using transit more regularly.

“The funding also allows us to continue our enhanced public health and safety measures on transit and ensures that we can maintain a state of good repair across our region’s transportation network – including transit, roads, bridges, and active transportation infrastructure to support pedestrians and cyclists.

“This announcement comes after working very closely with the Province through the Memorandum of Understanding we signed on June 25, 2020, to address the major financial impacts of COVID-19. TransLink will continue to work closely with our senior government partners to address the longer-term financial challenges which remain outstanding.”
