Celebrate with us! I Love Transit Week 2018 is October 1–5, 2018.

Yippee—it’s back! This fall, we’re once again inviting you to celebrate I Love Transit Week with us, October 1–5.

Since 2009, this award-winning week, dedicated to the region’s love of transit, has shared interesting stories celebrating our customers, transit enthusiasts and all the things we love about transit! In 2017, we added free bus rides for K-12 students during I Love Transit Week.

Here’s what we have lined up for you this year so far!

For everyone

Tell us (and read!) transit stories

Amazing transit stories are a staple of I Love Transit Week! Everything from a wedding on the SkyTrain to the journey from transit enthusiast to operator and amazing LEGO transit models.

Do you have an amazing story that showcases your love for transit? We want to hear it! Email thebuzzer@translink.ca with your story pitch. We’ll reach out if we’re interested in featuring it during I Love Transit Week.

Share your transit love and win!

Our popular Monthly Pass contests will return! Stay tuned for contest dates and details, but here’s the skinny:

  • Tell us why you love a transit using the hashtag #ILoveTransit during I Love Transit Week and you’ll be entered for a chance to win.
  • Be on the look out for the special I Love Transit issue of The Buzzer on the system, which will be on the system in late September. Colour the illustration and you could win!

For K-12 teachers and students

We’re once again inviting teachers and students to unleash their inner explorer and take learning beyond the classroom!

K-12 Students Ride the Bus for Free

Take learning beyond the classroom with FREE bus rides for K-12 students from October 1 to 5, 2018. Note: SkyTrain, SeaBus and West Coast Express travel are not included. Regular fares apply to adults accompanying students on the system.

One lucky class in grades 3 through 12 will win their way to I Love Transit Camp, a behind-the-scenes field trip to TransLink’s facilities. Meet with key people and see how we move about half-a-million people a day and plan for the future.

Check out this video from 2017 showcasing all the fun the winning class had!
