CALGARY, Alberta, Canada — Calgary Transit’s buses and trains are breaking down more often, and the city expects things to keep getting worse before they start to get better, Metro Canada reported.
Calgary Transit trains travelled 21% fewer kilometers between failures in 2014 as compared to 2012, on average, while buses made it 17% fewer clicks between breakdowns.
Part of the problem is an aging fleet, according to officials. Calgary Transit placed a $200-million deal in 2013 to buy 60 new light rail vehicles; however, those vehicles will not be operational until 2016. For the full story, click here.
