Remembrance Day service and parade reroutes

Just a reminder that on Remembrance Day tomorrow, all transit services will run on a Sunday/holiday schedule.

There are also Remembrance Day parades going on in various parts of the Lower Mainland, which means some bus reroutes. Here’s a link to all the customer alerts:

Vancouver reroutes
Burnaby & New Westminster reroutes
Richmond reroutes
North Vancouver reroutes
Surrey reroutes
Port Coquitlam reroutes

As well, veterans ride free on all TransLink services on Nov. 11, in recognition of Remembrance Day.

The concession applies to Ordinary and Life Members of the Royal Canadian Legion, the Army, Navy and Air Force Veterans and the Korean Veterans Association. Veterans just have to show their membership card to receive free transportation (and sorry, associate members aren’t eligible).

All TransLink services—meaning Coast Mountain buses, West Vancouver Blue Bus, SkyTrain, SeaBus, Albion Ferry and Community Shuttles—will also observe a period of silence at the stop they reach closest to 11 a.m. on Remembrance Day.

Plus, remember! On a holiday, you only need a single-zone fare to travel in all zones all day. As well, on a Sunday or holiday, those with an adult FareCard, West Coast Express 28-Day Pass, or Annual Employer Transit Pass can take either five children or one adult and four children on transit with them for free.

    I’m not in Canada, right now, but I appreciate Translink’s Rememberance Day service, because I am a reserve soldier.

    Thanks, Translink!
