Using Uber for the first time. Transit was not a viable option at this point as it was half the price of a taxi.

Tell me I'm wrong: It's a scandal that there is a railway line within 200m of the busiest passenger ferry terminal in Canada and there is no rail based mass transit option to get to Vancouver.

I always rush through Los Angeles Union Station - the trains and buses are so infrequent and schedule adherence so spotty that a two-minute dawdle can mean an hour’s delay.
So it is only because of a delayed train and an early-departing bus that I discovered, during the resulting 30-minute wait, that the bus plaza side of the station has two decorative fountains, a drinking fountain, washrooms, and a small monument.

Don’t be a dick on the train kids.
Afternoon commuters really don’t appreciate teenagers walking through the train swearing endlessly like tradies; and it’s the fastest way to some silver bracelets and some time with the local constabulary.

A passenger on this standing room only train seems to think that reserving a free seat with a Milo bar is somehow ok.😑

A photo of a Milo energy bar, placed alone on the seat of a Transperth train, seemingly by passenger in the seat opposite to ‘reserve the seat’ and keep others away from them.
