...But there are many variables that must be factored in when placement of stops is finalized - including demographics of a region (or neighbourhood/corridor).

I have always assumed that the relatively short distance between stops (at least in the downtown) was directly related to the high number of seniors in the area who probably can't walk as far.

I'm in Steveston where this great 1964 GMC fishbowl is on display:

Any "killer seals" around?

That bus is owned by "TRAMS" or "Transit Museum Society of Vancouver". It's an old GM Fishbowl.

I think that's mostly a misconception. Very few stops are actually ~200m apart along the 14's route:

 

Bay @ Douglas to next Rock Bay/Govt: 200m

Rock Bay/Govt to Turner: 500m

Turner to Tyee: 450m

Tyee to Catherine: 350m

Catherine to Pine: 350m

Pine to Coventry: 300m

Coventry to Carrie: 350m

Carrie to Arcadia: 190m

Arcadia to Lampson: 220m

 

People seem to realize that buses will get later and later if people keep boarding the bus. I miss the days when the 70x used to only stop at specific stops Downtown. Same for the 61x. BCT is basically trying to eliminate anything express-based. I believe only the 61x, 27/28x, and 32x are the only express routes left. Even the 76x is being canned.

The 15X seemed to lose the X at some point, but it definitely does not stop at the odd stops others do.
