Over 50,000 fans are expected to attend the U2 concert at BC Place on Wednesday night, so we’re ramping up our transit service to help you get to and from the event.
Expo and Millennium Line will extend rush hour service into the pre-show period (the concert begins at 7pm) and will operate rush hour service again after the concert.
Canada Line will also extend peak service into the pre-show period with spare trains available if need be. The reduction in service from evening to late-night levels will take place at midnight rather than 11pm.
Portable fareboxes will be set up at Stadium-Chinatown, Yaletown-Roundhouse and Vancouver City Centre Stations, so you can buy your return ticket before the concert and avoid lines at Ticket Vending Machines after the show. These return tickets will be valid until the end of service.
SeaBus will run 15-minute service until the 10:45pm sailing from Waterfront.
Coast Mountain Bus Company will have Transit Supervisors on-hand to monitor the situation and call in any additional resources, as required.
West Vancouver Transit will have extra buses leaving Horseshoe Bay, Dundarave and Park Royal between 5:30-7pm and additional buses will be provided during the post-concert period, as well.
The concert by U2 is one of the biggest events of the year, and we hope to help you get to and from the show easily and safely!
Also, through much self restraint, I avoided posting any U2-related puns in this post.
