Here’s the overview of holiday service and fares for this week!

For more details, please visit the TransLink website or call 604-953-3333 for more information. (I’m on holiday until Jan. 5, so I won’t be able to respond to your comments.)

Christmas Eve – Wednesday, Dec. 24

West Coast Express afternoon trains depart downtown at 1:00, 3:00, 4:50, 5:30 and 6:20, plus the regular TrainBus service.

Christmas Day – Thursday, Dec. 25

Regular holiday fares in effect — only a single-zone fare is needed for travel in all zones all day. As well, on a Sunday or holiday, all passengers 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.

Most bus routes will run according to their Sunday/holiday schedules; however, some routes will also run with further frequency modifications.

SkyTrain and SeaBus will run on a Sunday/holiday schedule.

There will be no West Coast Express service on Christmas Day.

SeaBus will run according to a Sunday/holiday schedule, but will extend late-night service according to a Saturday schedule.

    The iPhone version of translink’s website should be updated when services are not operating normally which they are clearly not being that skytrain is shut down and buses are rerouted.
