The January Buzzer is now out!

The January 2010 Buzzer is now on all buses, SeaBus, SkyTrain, and West Coast Express!

Since the Olympics are on and everyone at TransLink will be out in the field, this issue is actually going to be on the system throughout January and February.

It’s filled with Olympic travel information, including resources to help you “know before you go,” handy phone numbers, info about fares, and fun facts about transit.

We’ve also filled the community events section with free events happening during the Olympics, which we found at’s free 2010 events listings!

Again, we’re proud to have a cover from a local illustrator: this time it’s Chloe Lan. Great job, Chloe!

And as always, if you can’t get the Buzzer on the system, you can always read it in PDF form on our website. Visit our Buzzer PDF archives, which now stretch back to January 2000. (Here’s the direct link to the January issue PDF.)

Remember to enter the FareCard contest too! You can win a free FareCard in every issue of the Buzzer: read the issue, then email in your info and the answer to the trivia question by Monday, March 1 at 9 a.m. — we’ll pick a winner from all the correct answers.

Enjoy the latest Buzzer as always! Comments are welcome below.

    I heard the VANOC Accreditation Passes were only good for transit until March 3 but The Buzzer says March 24, could you confirm which date is correct? Thanks!

    The info I’ve been given says March 24, but I’m going to confirm that with our Olympic team.

    Thanks. :) The information I got was from VANOC so perhaps they were not completely aware of Translink’s plans.

    Long time coming… but the answer is yes! The passes are valid until March 24.
