TransLink’s operating budget turned in a $ 24 million surplus in the first quarter of 2010. Originally, TransLink forecast a $ 10 million deficit. The organisation credits Olympic ridership and VANOC payments for Olympic-related services, higher than forecast post-Olympics ridership, and cost cutting for the $ 34 million budget shift.
