I Love Transit Week 2017: Beyond


I Love Transit Week: Beyond is October 2–6! Since 2009, we have shared interesting stories celebrating our riders, transit enthusiasts and all the things we love about transit over the course of a special week dedicated to just that, our love of transit!

For the first time this year, I Love Transit Week will have a theme: Beyond—the future of transportation in Metro Vancouver! Here’s what we have in store for K-12 teachers and everyone else:

Share your transit love and win! 

If you love transit and you know it, clap your hands… and then enter the the I Love Transit contest! Tell us why you love a transit and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a Monthly Pass on your Compass Card.
