    #ASKFinch – Is light rail faster than a bus?

    September 21, 2019


    hi I’m Raquel gold I’m the senior
    project manager for facilities at the Finch West LRT at Metrolinx it
    should be faster than the bus because for most of the corridor you will have a
    dedicated travel lane and at intersections the traffic signals will
    be reconfigured to give priority to the LRT

    CAR vs BIKE vs TRAIN – We found the FASTEST way through LA Traffic

    September 15, 2019


    – Los Angeles is known for
    its incredible car culture. But is the car really the
    best way to get around? Well today, we’re gonna be racing through rush hour traffic, in
    the city with the worst traffic in the entire country. I’ve got my car, Zach’s got his bike, Raghav is gonna be taking
    public transportation. ‘Cause he doesn’t own a car or a bike and he’s the only one we
    found who would do it. Racing 13.6 miles from downtown LA to our office in Santa Monica, this is car versus bike versus public transportation. (car engine starting) (bike helmet clipping) – Let’s do it.
    – Yeah. – Oh wait, are we going for real? – Alright, I guess this is it. – Alright. – Start us off Nolan,
    give us the countdown. – Okay, three, two, one. (car roaring) – Raghav, have a great day at school. – Oh camera’s rolling, oh
    geeze, Zach just passed me. Zach just passed me. – We’re here at the office
    and we’re gonna track the guy’s progress with
    this state of the art lap top computer and
    global positioning systems that each of them have
    on their cellphones. – This guy just walkin’ through. – Nolan has moved two
    feet, looks like he hit some traffic right away. – It’s called a cross walk. – Yesterday I was like, I
    don’t really care if I win, right now I really wanna beat Nolan. – My car 2006 Mustang GT,
    save your crowd jokes, I don’t wanna hear ’em,
    I’ve heard ’em all before. (upbeat music) – I’m just tryna time the lights right now as best as I can. – I’m using Google Maps which is giving me the fastest route. (upbeat music) It’s not hard to see why
    people like driving their car to work, you know,
    you got your own music you can listen to, you got
    your climate control, and you can kinda just
    have your own space. Totally forgot dude, I got pizza. – Ridin’ a bike, you get
    immersed with the locals, see your neighbors. What’s up? – Hell yeah, pineapple
    and ham, again, save your jokes, I love pineapple and ham. – What’s up man? What’s up? – It’s like hating on
    Bruno Mars, you know, he’s a great musician. (train passing) (crowd chattering) – Or maybe we lost Raghav
    ’cause he’s underground. Ooh, Nolan and Zach, neck and neck. That’s not, that doesn’t
    bode well for Zach. That doesn’t. – I have no clue where I am. – I’m excited, this is really fun, this is the most fun I’ve
    had sitting in traffic. – Unless something happens, I
    think Nolan just passed Zach. – Let’s give Zach a call. – I think I’m gonna call Nolan soon. (phone ringing) What’s up Nolan. – Zach, how are ya? – Good dude, where you at? – Probably east of Culver I think. I’m pretty comfortable, got the AC on, I’m feelin’ good man. Yeah I think that the
    final stretch is gonna be key I think. I realize I was using my
    phone while I’m driving. Not supposed to do that. It’s dangerous. – I like when people are
    like, ah man, I’d move to LA but how do you guys deal with the traffic? That’s where Nolan is right now. – C’mon. – Zach didn’t have to make any turns. Zach is just like whew. – Wonder how Raghav’s doin’. (upbeat techno music) (upbeat music) – Why is everyone on the road? What are you doing, going to work? With your jobs. (super fast zooming) – No, no, no. I’m legit like stressing
    out (laughing) over this. – Five minutes away. – Err, oh my-are you kidding me? That would’ve been Raghav’s train. No dude, no. – [Train Announcer] Now
    arriving Expo Sepulveda Station. – Five minutes, goin’ crazy. (upbeat music) – Did I win? – Yeah. – Ahh. – You just smoked him. – Dude I’m exhausted, like I
    need to go home and shower. (laughing) Yeah I need drive back. – Agh, well done, well done. 10 is just like you change lanes, ’cause one’s faster and then it just becomes slow immediately. – Yeah. (applause) – We actually clap for
    Raghav, everyday when he comes into work, I dunno how the joke started. (laughing) – The takeaway is I think
    the bike is probably I won’t say the best.
    – Fastest. – The fastest way to get around LA. – During rush hour.
    – During rush hour. But you get really sweaty. Public transit is really
    cheap, but it takes a while. – Cars, you gotta spend
    a lot of money on gas, but it is comfortable. – [Crewman] And insurance. – And insurance and
    everything else, but I think the best way to get around
    LA, is on a motorcycle. (laughing) – So Zach forgot his helmet
    and we knew we couldn’t make a video of him, with
    him not wearing a helmet so Eddie did this commute twice. – [Nolan] Yeah. – To go get Zach’s helmet from his house. – Especially in La, it
    never rains and you can split lane so, it’s basically the best. Thanks for watchin’
    please like this video, tell us in the comments
    about your commute, we’d love to hear about
    it, maybe we should make more motorcycle videos. – I guess we have to go to work now. – Yeah (laughing) yeah dang.
