Translink’s Jarvis responding to call for outside review of #Skytrain shutdowns

Translink CEO Ian Jarvis, in his first public comments since the double Skytrain shutdowns, is now proposing a more robust internal review supplemented by outside specialists. This is a good first step to respond to the calls Mayor Gregor Robertson and I have made for an independent review.

There is no doubt many follow-up consultations and inquiries will be needed, not least on how to assure the public address system works and travellers are kept safe in the event of a shutdown, big or small. In my view, a fully independent review is still warranted and the results, of course, of any review should be made public.
