We continue to salt and sand bus loops and SkyTrain stations, but please use caution in these areas and remember to dress warmly in anticipation of potential delays.

Expect extra crowding on some routes To provide improved traction, many articulated buses have been switched with standard, 40 foot buses. This will mean some modified service, with increased crowding and the possibility of passups in some areas.

HandyDART is currently operating regular service.

Last Friday, we drew a winner from 10 finalists in our One in a Billion contest: Mr. Jot Kailay!

The contest, organized together with the Province newspaper, celebrated SkyTrain’s milestone of one billion passenger trips this year.

Jot’s 100-word contest entry talked about a whole train joining in with a little girl’s rendition of “If You’re Happy And You Know It”: all of the 10 finalist entries can be found on the Province’s site.

And as the grand winner, Jot took home was $1000 and a year of transit passes. Our nine runners-up won a free monthly pass for up to three zones of travel. Thank you to everyone for entering and congratulations to the winners again!

    Hey thats me ! :) I read about the contest on this very blog, so thanks. I moved from Edmonton about 4 years to live in a more urban setting. I’m super impressed by how forward thinking Translink is. Thanks.
