If you’re scrounging for last-minute Halloween costume ideas, here’s some inspiration from our staff at TransLink.

First, one of our planners made this U-Pass costume for Halloween in 2006!

Yes, that’s Q from Star Trek on the front. The joke is that he’s omnipotent, so he doesn’t even need a U-Pass. Irony!

(The back also has Star Trek rules in place of the U-Pass terms and conditions, but obviously you can replace them with whatever you see fit).

Second, here’s the B-Line bee!

The bee tells me she repurposed an old bee costume and mixed it up with some transit-related signage.

If you don’t have a ready-made bee costume on hand, you can still make one fairly easily.

Put on a black t-shirt and use yellow tape for the stripes. Or put on a yellow shirt and use black tape for the stripes.

Then find your B-Line signage, and you’ve got an instant B-Line bee!

If you have a good transit costume for Halloween too, feel free to e-mail me a picture!

And if not, oh well! Happy Halloween!
