Secondly, the spirit of sharing is not very comum in todays world. In fact, people tend to be more selfish and caring less about others. However, love flourish that felling and make people more likely to share what they have. For instance, sharing the half a lanche with someone who do not have or even giving a piece of a fruit are actitudes that people moved by love often do. Therefore, love incentive people do help solving social problems, as hungry, which is just by us and we dont realize.

Another imporant social matter that love could help to solve is the violence. It is undeniable that the fisrt thing to associate with love is peace.

The major reasons why cigarettes should be banned from public areas are, the damaging to health, inconvenience for others non-smoking and because it is a way to make people quit that habit.

Writing Feedback / Geo Project - Vehicles in the Lower Mainland [3]

Hello EssayForum,

I'm working in a GEO project, which the topic is The residents of the Lower Mainland need to become more environmental friendly and find different ways to commute.

I would like to ask for some feedbacks, because english is not my first leangue, and some ideas for the conclusion, here is my project:

Alternatives: ( Intro )

The population in the Lower Mainland has increased in size and numbers over the last century. Due to, the expansion of the population, the quantity of vehicles on road, in Great Vancouver, has increased and also the environmental problems caused by the traffic. Inevitably, people are using their cars more than ever and every day becoming more and more dependent on them.

However, in order to preserve the environment, the expanding population needs to become more environmentally conscious and adopt new ways of commuting; for instance, taking public transport, biking or sharing a ride.

- Public Transport ( Great Vancouver )


The Public transport in the Great Vancouver is so far the best way to become more environmental friendly and reduce the greenhouse gasses issues. Translink is the organization responsible for the regional transportation of Metro Vancouver in BC, including public transport and major roads and bridges. Translink was created in 1998, before it was called GVTA, and complete implemented in April 1999 by the government of BC. It is Translink responsibility the various types of transportation in the Metro Vancouver, that complex network involve operations between three subsidiaries companies: Coast Mountain Bus Co., BCRTC (SkyTrain) and West Coast Express commuter rail.

- Coast Mountain Bus Company (CMBC): operates conventional buses, smaller community shuttles, SeaBus and the fleet trolley buses in Greater Vancouver.
- BCRTC: operates and maintains the SkyTrain system, the rapid transit, and is responsible for the West Coast Express commuter rail services.
- West Coast Express: is an efficient commuter rail service linking Mission, Port Haney, Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam and Port Moody with downtown Vancouver.

Future Projects:

Since 2003, TransLink has made significant progress on delivering its budget expansion program, creating the roads, bridges, rapid transit and bus service improvements in Metro Vancouver that will improve travel times, and promote a robust economy and sustainable environment. Here are some of the major improvements:

- Expanding Rapid Transit: A new Skytrain line, Canada Line, linking Vancouver, Richmond and Vancouver International Airport. ( Due Date: Nov. 2009 )
- Roads and Bridges: Golden Ears Bridge that will connect Langley/Surrey and Maple/Pitt Meadows Bridge. ( Due Date: Nov. 2009 )
- Buses: adding 94 new vehicles in 2008 to expand the bus fleet, plus another 160 new vehicles to replace older models.

2010 Olympics Games:

During the Olympics and Paralympics Games, the public transportation will have large increase traffic, particularly in areas nearby to the Games. There will be road and parking restrictions, so it's important to get ready and start planning your trip since now.

There are different methods that you can travel in a way to reduce the traffic on the roads and transit system during the games. TransLink are offering a special 60-Day Olympic Transit Pass for the BC residents, during and after the Games to incentive people to use more the Public Transport. Futhermore, here are some options:

Modify your schedule in a way to skip the peak travel time.
Incentive employees to travel by transit outside of peak travel times.
Experience different way to commute: ride-sharing, walking or cycling.
Change business operations - offer employees vacations, or let them to leave to enjoy the Games.

- Cycling ( Great Vancouver )


Cycling is another option to become more environmental conscious and health at the same time. Cycling usually is the fastest way of getting around especially in the urban areas of Great Vancouver. It is also a healthful and enjoyable way to travel. Riding a bike isn't good just for your wallet and your waistline. It is also good for the environment.

To illustrate, if your destination is less than five kilometers away, you can typically get there on a bike in the same time as a car and without the parking problems. In addition, you are able to combine cycling and public transit, which makes it fastest than driving a car. Since 2002, bikes are allowed all the public transit. Currently, almost 60,000 trips are made by bike everyday in the Great Vancouver. The number of daily trips made by bike has almost tripled since 1994.


Despite the fact that cycling is one great solution to become more environmental conscious it has some barriers and disadvantages. There are some of the barriers for biking in Vancouver:

*Weather: The weather in the Great Vancouver is the biggest problem cyclists have to face, for instance; the summer only lasts for two months in Vancouver but during the other 10 months the weather conditions make it very difficult for cyclists to ride.

*Crowded roads: Some roads are crowded by the car, bus or truck traffic. In addition, it is not specifically made for cyclists.
*Risks: A cyclist could possibly get injured or run over by motorists who don't know how to drive safely near bicycles.

However, the government of British Columbia is doing a great job to improve the roads, building special bicycle path in a way to overcome some of the barriers.

- Jack Bell - Ride Share ( Great Vancouver )


Another interesting way to get green and stop the CO2 issues is the Jack Bell program. It offers express door-to-door commuting options to individuals travelling in and out of the Lower Mainland. JBR programs include free on-line ride matching, vanpooling and carpooling. Finding a compatible rideshare partner or group on your own can be difficult and time consuming. Ridesharing is convenient for commuters who work both regular and irregular schedules, have part-time jobs or attend university.


Sharing a ride is a great way to become environmental friendly, reduce the issues, save time and also save some money in gas and parking. Cooperating is the best method to help save the environment.

- Conclusion:


-> I kind of took some parts out but the main idea is there!

Thank you! Wait for the repply!! thanks again!
