Buses to roll again

VANCOUVER, B.C. — After sitting in the garage for four months, buses will once again roll across the Lower Mainland thanks to legislation tabled last week by the B.C. Liberals.

Bill 13, also known as the Greater Vancouver Transit Services Settlement Act, was introduced last Wednesday and as a result, transit workers will be back on the job as of today.

It is estimated that TransLink saved $4 million during the strike, as the organization continued to collect fuel tax transfers during the strike. But TransLink still faces a 2002 deficit of about $22 million.
