#MyTransLink – July 30

SkyTrain bridge

Happy Tuesday, folks! Looks like we may be getting a breather from the scorching heat, finally! Tuesday also means it’s #MyTransLink time, so all you Instagrammers out there, we love what you share with us – keep clicking and sharing!

To the newbies, #MyTransLink is our series on The Buzzer blog where we publish photos taken and published on social media by you – our customers! Each week, we give you a theme and you share your stunning photos by using the hashtag #MyTransLink on Instagram.

#MyTransLink isn’t just about transit in the Metro Vancouver area. It’s a chance to stand back and admire what our cities offer us. Last week, we asked you to share photos of the sun, as well as transit, and we love all those magnificent photos you share.

If the sun and the heat aren’t your thing, then maybe ice cream is? Here’s a list of some transit-friendly ice cream spots in Metro Vancouver. You can take advantage of our increased bus service to get there.

Our Tap to Pay payment option makes it easier than ever before to pay and be on your way. Remember, Compass cards offer discounted fares if you are a regular transit rider.

So, for this week’s #MyTransLink post, we want you to share photos of architecture – especially of our transit system! Take advantage of the gorgeous sundown light and share your awesome clicks with us using the hashtag #MyTransLink, and we’ll be sure to feature them here.

Here are some of last week’s clicks:
