The Buzzer blog
Blogger from October 2008 to August 2013
In October 2008, I launched the Buzzer blog, the web companion to the Buzzer newsletter and TransLink’s main corporate blog. Almost every weekday thereafter, I’ve updated the blog with features about our system and tidbits on transportation issues in Vancouver and beyond. After four years of publishing, the blog now has over 1,500 posts and 15,000 comments—a rare and vibrant community of readers for a public agency blog, and a central place for many to chat and ask questions about Metro Vancouver’s transportation system. I’m also able to pipe customer feedback directly to TransLink staff to help inform our work. And the blog won the 2010 Best Blog award and the 2012 Best Blog award from the American Public Transportation Association!
