Santa will be busy for the next couple of days—there are five holiday parades coming up around the region this weekend! And as you know, parades also mean some extra service and bus reroutes, along with a lot of holiday spirit :)
Check the TransLink Alerts page for the exact details on all the parades and reroutes: I’ve compiled the highlights below.

As always, SkyTrain will provide extra trains for the Rogers Santa Claus parade in Vancouver (an easy, traffic-free way to get there and back!). The parade starts at 1 p.m., and to get there, exit SkyTrain at either Burrard or Granville Station (both have elevators for wheelchairs and strollers), and walk to Georgia Street.
SeaBus will also double its regular Sunday service, with sailings every 15 minutes between the Lonsdale Quay and Waterfront Station from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
By the way, remember our group ride offer applies on Sundays and holidays! The specifics: if you have an adult FareCard, West Coast Express 28-Day Pass, or Annual Employer Transit Pass, you can take five children, or one adult and four children on transit with you for free.
