Seth Rogen – A Guest Voice on Transit


Want to know what would make public transit even more awesome? Seth Rogen!

That’s right, the Vancouver-born actor, voice actor, comedian, writer, producer, and director has donated his time and love of Metro Vancouver and TransLink in the form of public announcements on our system!

In the coming weeks and into the fall, Seth Rogen’s distinctive voice (and laugh) can be heard on SkyTrain platforms, SkyTrain cars and buses across the region. Seth will be tackling transit etiquette as well as interesting tidbits about Vancouver and his relation to it.

If you don’t already know, Seth grew up in Vancouver using our public transit system and still does so today! We were overjoyed that Seth wanted to help make the customer experience on transit better…and funnier!

We’re also stoked that this idea of having Seth be the guest voice on transit came from our followers on social media and that we were able to make it happen.

    Is this really necessary? Annoying and likely expensive. Why not concentrate on quality and reliability of service.

    Hey K Katz, like Pure Excellence has already noted Seth did this all for free. These announcements will totally help with quality and reliability of service. Seth talks about transit etiquette like not eating on transit and keeping feet of seats, and not holding doors open, which all hurt the quality and reliability of service.

    In reply to K Katz: Seth Rogen did this for free. The only costs TransLink would be paying for is the studio and editing, which wouldn’t be enough money to boost service frequency on any route. This is absolute pennies in comparison to what it would cost to implement service improvements. As for boosting reliability of service, it is kind of out of TransLink’s control, and more at the mercy of traffic and the weather.

    Hello, could you ask Seth to make an announcement regarding stinky people in public transit specially now that it’s so hot. It’s unbearable on rush hour! Thanks.

    Wow this is annoying. Upgrade the speakers so we can understand what is trying to be said, then save them for actual announcements regarding transit issues. Also Sorry the scripts are terrible.

    Absolutely useless. Trains aren’t air conditioned. Canadaline is equipped with air conditioning system but hotter than outside. People painted on the train and bus. Always maintenance and causing so much inconvenient. Simplest routes and nothing complicated still can’t get it right. Way worse the the train and bus in the developing countries. Stopping wasting time on this kind of meaninglessness things. Get your act together.
