The May 2014 Buzzer is now on the system and we have some exciting content in this issue.

#WhatsTheLink — did you know TransLink is responsible for more than transit? We’re also responsible for roads, bridges, cycling and walking paths. TransLink manages 2,300 lane kilometres of major roads!

The 2013 Annual General Meeting is taking place on Wednesday, May 28. It’s your chance you hear more about our accomplishments and financial highlights of the past year.

HUB is organizing Bike to Work Week from May 26 to June 1, and we are here to share with you a few things you need to know before you hit the road with your two-wheeler.

Later this month, we’ll be introducing the very first Secure Bike Parking area at Main Street-Science World.

Transit Police offers five tips to ensure your journey on public transport is a success. Remember to take the Train2Main if you are travelling to Main Street-Science World. Monday, May 19 is Victoria Day — that means all transit will operate on a Sunday/holiday schedule.

And as always, we have the usual favourites, including the Contest Corner, Back Issues and Coming Events.

Remember to pick it up on the bus, SkyTrain, SeaBus, West Coast Express, or download it here!

    As one who frequently takes the ferry to Victoria, it was fascinating to see the story in the print Buzzer that the express bus and ferry fare combined was $4.25 in 1960. Today, the Pacific Coach and ferry fare, with taxes and surcharges, is $58.80. Quite an increase, considering that according to the Bank of Canada inflation calculator $4.25 then is equivalent to $34.44 now.

    I’m grateful for the 620 bus, I really am, but then $4.25 bought you a guaranteed seat on the bus, both sides, which sometimes happens on the Victoria side, but NEVER this side.
