It's worth noting that Delta is a potential transfer point between northern Main+King transit (express LRT) and southern Main+King transit (all stop bus).

A new bus route, similar to the #1 King bus, can take the route that LRT does not take -- i.e. Main 2-way (west of Delta) and turn onto King east of Delta. It is possible that perhaps this bus route might not be introduced right away, but the door is left open.

A station at Delta would also, additionally, allay some concerns about LRT stop spacing as well. A pair of parallel 2-way public transit, instead of a pair of 1-way transit where you walk as much as 500 meters to reach opposite-direction transit (today's status quo).

Delta LRT station and connected Gore+MacNab could be convenient interchange points between these two parallel transit routes, amplifying each other's ridership (including the LRT itself).

Transit 1-way versus 2-way
