    I am a least a 2nd generation Vancouverite, a Historian, and a Trolley Driver, with friends on Kit’s Point. I really enjoy driving there as I love being by the ocean, and it is a terrific museum. We follow the strict instructions to NEVER ring the bell anywhere on Kits Point. We just started stopping here this season, and I can’t comment on the current arrangement as I am not the Owner.

    No they should not. The agreement with the Trolley company was that they would make one stop in this residential neighborhood at the Vancouver Museum servicing all the institutions. It is ridiculous to impose extra bus traffic on residents, pedestrians, park users, crisscrossing the seawall and bike route 42 times a day. Granville Island has one stop and it is outside of the island. It is also where everyone gets off the bus, so not a deterrent to people visiting places they want to visit.
