I wrote about the new Capilano University transit exchange on February 9, but an official opening is now set for Monday, Apr. 6!

So join TransLink, Coast Mountain Bus Company, West Vancouver Transit and Capilano University for a special ceremony marking the official opening of the new Capilano University transit exchange.

The event is at Capilano University, 2055 Purcell Way, in the Maple Building (Student Lounge), starting at 10 a.m., and then moving to the location of the new exchange itself. Refreshments will be served!

It’s a great milestone for us and for Capilano University. In January 2009, students joined the Vancity U-Pass program, where each student receives a mandatory transit pass at a substantially reduced rate. The Vancity U-Pass drove the need for a new exchange due to the increased demand for transit services among the 14,000-plus students.

The exchange has been achieved through the collaborative efforts of the university’s students, staff and faculty, TransLink and the two bus companies serving the university, the District of North Vancouver and the local neighbourhood. Monday’s ceremony is a much-anticipated opportunity to acknowledge those efforts! We look forward to seeing you there!
