ALERT! : More info
Translink Buzzer Blog

The March Buzzer is now out!

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

Since the Olympic experience was so huge for us, this issue talks about stories from the Games, the ridership we carried, and some great quotes we heard from customers and the media.

You might recognize many of the stories from the blog — especially the salmon riding transit!

We also have travel info about the Paralympics, and the community events section lists the free Paralympic events that you can attend. Make sure to visit travelsmart2010.ca or the TransLink page on Paralympic transportation for all the details.

Again, we are happy to have a cover from a local illustrator: this time it’s Jesse Williams. Thanks Jesse!

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. (Here’s the direct link to the March 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 Friday, March 26 at 9 a.m. — we’ll pick a winner from all the correct answers.

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

    Sorry to nitpick but not a word on the average 10% transit fare hike April 1st? Sure I already pay $269 for my 28 day WCE pass already from Mission but I am about to pay nearly $300 every 4 weeks for the privilege of taking transit, and it’s still the same old 5 trains each way plus the few trainbuses. It’s a tough pill to swallow.

    Eep – that’s an oversight. Though I must add that there will be more communication about the increase on the blog and in the media, and the next Buzzer comes out on April 2, which is very close to the change date.
