If you’ve taken issue with TransLink during your daily commute, you’re not alone.

The transit authority released its top 10 bus routes for rider complaints last year.

Most of the nearly 30,000 complaints related to overcrowding, the schedule, and the driver’s behaviour. TransLink received 2,600 complaints more than last year – up 10 per cent.

Meanwhile, staff said ridership on buses went up by seven per cent.
