Celebrate Chinese Lunar New Year with TransLink!

Chinese New Year

Gong hei fat choy! Today kicks off Chinese Lunar New Year – also known as the Spring Festival in modern China, which is an important Chinese festival celebrated at the turn of the traditional lunar Chinese calendar. This year is the year of the Dog, and we’re excited to be a part of one of the 45th annual Chinese New Year Parade taking place in Chinatown on Sunday, February 18, 2018.

Look out for TransLink staff aboard a TRAMS bus and grab a lucky red envelope!
