I Love Transit 2017: K–12 students ride the bus for free, Oct. 2–6

I Love Transit 2017

Students in kindergarten through grade 12 will be eligible for free bus travel during I Love Transit Week, Oct. 2–6, 2017.

The majority of school-aged children and youth in our country are not getting enough physical activity. That’s why it’s so important to encourage active transportation from a young age!

Just like iWALK in previous years at TransLink, students in kindergarten through grade 12 will be eligible for free bus travel during I Love Transit Week, Oct. 2–6, 2017.

I Love Transit is the one week we take out of the year to celebrate our customers and what we love about transit.

We ask teachers who are planning to take advantage of free bus travel for field trips to plan the transit portion during off-peak hours, between 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

Put your walking shoes on and get trip ready with our Trip Planner, use Next Bus or reach out to our Customer Information team on Twitter or by phone at 604-953-3333.

*Please note that this does not include SkyTrain, SeaBus and West Coast Express. As well, regular fares apply to adults accompanying children and high school students on the system.

    So you put up a picture of the Seabus, but it’s excluded from the promotion. ;)

    Probably should’ve been a better idea to put a bus with kids on it instead of the walkway to the SeaBus, since the free trips do not apply to SeaBus.

    Hey Andrea, sharp set of eyes! I’ve updated the photo, just so it doesn’t create any confusion among sharp-eyed folks like yourself. :)

    How does it work? Do you just tell the bus drive you don’t need to tap?
