I'd go south to 49th head east and then take Rumble at Boundary and blow past all that crap WITHOUT stopping for 15 secs every block the entire way.

Lower mainland or Vernon the bus still stops every block. Vehicles don't have to.

Try reading the paper and relaxing while standing on the bus crammed in amongst the mouth breating unwashed masses.

It's a long haul up the hill is the excuse but Johnny's On The Rez in Lower Nicola is always cheaper and if you're lucky they give you their price.

That is for using your vehicle for work. Including going for the mail or making a delivery. The company can pay you that much without creating a tax situation.
