The March Buzzer is out!

The March Buzzer is out!

The March 2009 Buzzer is now on all our buses, SeaBus, SkyTrain, and West Coast Express!

(Sorry for the late notification — I should have written this last Friday, but there was a bit of a mixup and we didn’t get the PDF on the website until today. So here’s the update now!)

The issue gives everybody a recap of I Love Transit Week here on the blog, sharing your system secrets, favourite SkyTrain stations, I Love Transit Night, and more!

There’s also a little bus route puzzle, an update on the Easter weekend holiday service, and a 1975 Back Issues that shows how much transit operators were paid back then.

Once more, we are pleased to feature the work of a Canadian illustrator on the cover, from illustrator Randy Laybourne.

And this issue marks the first issue produced by Carol Evans, a colleague who now works with me on the print Buzzer, since the blog takes up quite a lot of my time! I’m sort of the Buzzer’s editor-in-chief now, I guess you could say — I direct content and oversee production, and Carol’s doing more of the actual writing and layout.

As always, if you can’t get the Buzzer on the system, you can always read it in PDF form on our website. Visit our Buzzer PDF archives, which stretch back to the heady days of June 2006. (Here’s the direct link to the March issue PDF.)

Don’t forget to enter the FareCard contest too: you can win a free FareCard in every issue of the Buzzer. Read the issue, then answer the question right by Thursday, Apr. 9 at 9 a.m. to win!
