My name is Scott Podwinski, and I have started a petition to get SkyTrain running 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. It is less than a week old and already has over 5,000 signatures on it. The link is http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=6666586191

I will be printing out the list of signatures (names in the group) and attaching it to a hand signed petition that I will be starting shortly.

I have had enough of being stuck downtown if I don’t get on the train early enough and having to pay over $50 for a cab to Surrey – if they decide to take you there!

We are a world class city with a transit system that doesn’t match up. Other transit systems across the country are cheaper to take, and don’t leave their passengers stranded downtown at night. It would not cost that much more to run trains at night, even if it’s every 20-30 minutes.

I won’t stop until it happens.
