I took a taxi home from work this evening. I’ve done it a million times before when we used to work downtown but this was my first time from Burnaby. Since we’re in the middle of nowhere, the security desk has to specifically call a taxi for us. In better times, we’d just saunter over to the taxi stand outside the Pan Pacific Hotel.
Since it was Sunday, the wait for the taxi was no more than five minutes. Instead of Vancouver Taxi, the Burnaby location is serviced by Bonny’s Taxi. After an uneventful ride, the fare came to about $23. It probably would have taken another $20 had I been coming from downtown.
Let’s hope I don’t take too many taxis home before the project is over.
