Get a (chocolate) medal on transit for being TravelSmart!

Get a (chocolate) medal on transit for being TravelSmart!

You might get a sweet treat on transit over the next few days, right as the Paralympics kick off!

Starting today, Friday March 12, we’re sending out street ambassadors to thank you for helping to contribute to the success of the Games by going TravelSmart. They’ll be handing out chocolate medals to those who can answer a few TravelSmart questions correctly.

As you may know, our transit system managed to move an average of 1.6 million people every day during the Olympic Games, which is about 50 percent more people on a normal day. And much of the credit goes to everyone in Metro Vancouver, for choosing to leave your private autos behind and using other means of getting around.

Our ambassadors will be on the bus, SkyTrain, SeaBus or West Coast Express today and on the weekend: so keep an eye out to win a medal!
