Family Day holiday service, February 11, 2013

Snow or not, we hope you enjoy the day! Test

Many of us have been waiting for this holiday, and on February 11, 2013 we’ll have our first Family Day in BC!

Remember, Sundays and Statutory Holidays you can use your FareCard to take five other riders with you for free! A total of six riders is allowed: Two adults (14 and older) and up to four children (13 and under) can ride on a single Adult FareCard, West Coast Express 28-day Pass, or Annual Employer Transit Pass. (Does not apply to Concession Passes.)

Here’s what you need to know about the day as far as transit goes in Metro Vancouver:

Buses, SkyTrain and SeaBus – will operate on the Sunday/Holiday schedule on Family Day, Monday, February 11, 2013. Sunday/Holiday fares will be in effect.

West Coast Express will not operate on that day.

All services will be back on their regular weekday schedules, Tuesday, Feb. 12.

If Family Day is a holiday for you, we hope you have an enjoyable and restful day with those close to you!

    It’s hard to estimate with no previous baseline, but based on what happened this morning, probably want to start Skytrain at least a half hour earlier, or on a Saturday schedule for next year’s Family Day. The first train from King George Station leaving at 7:08 AM was already standing room only, and by the time it left Gateway Station it was full. A lot more people work today than a usual Sunday. The afternoon commute might prove interesting.
