Note: This is a scheduled post — I’m still on vacation right now and will be back Monday, Apr. 20.
Hop on transit to get to the Sun Run at 9 a.m. on Sunday, Apr. 19!
To help get you there, SkyTrain will start 30 minutes early at rush-hour service levels. The first train leaves King George at 6:38 a.m., arriving at Stadium Station by 7:15 a.m.
Blue, yellow and green numbers should exit at Burrard; white, purple and red numbers are closer to Granville. Remember that you can also pre-pay your return journey as you exit Burrard or Granville Station between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m., to avoid ticket machine lineups after the race.
West Coast Express will also operate a special Sun Run Express train, leaving Mission City at 7 a.m., arriving at Waterfront at 8:15 a.m. and returning at 1 p.m.
SeaBus will also start an hour earlier, leaving Lonsdale Quay at 7:02 a.m. (northbound from Waterfront from 7:16 a.m.). It will run every 15 minutes, reverting to the regular 30-minute Sunday frequency after 2:30 p.m.
For bus reroutes, check our Customer Alerts page — lots of downtown Vancouver buses will be rerouted for the race. If you’d like a paper copy of the reroutes, grab the April Buzzer on transit — they’re all listed inside!
And while regular Sunday fares are in effect, using an adult monthly FareCard or annual Employer Pass on Sundays allows group travel of two adults and four children, or one adult and five children. Just remember that you all must ride the same vehicle and have your pass ready for inspection if needed.
