Canada Day transit service, Thu July 1

Canada Day transit service, Thu July 1

Canada Day revellers at Canada Place! (Thanks to Canada Place for the photo!)

It’s Canada Day on Thursday! Which means our transit system will be operating on a slightly modified Sunday/Holiday schedule to accommodate the celebrations. (By the way, did you know the Olympic cauldron will be relit for Canada Day at Canada Place? It’s true!)

Buses will run on Sunday/holiday schedules, although additional buses will run shuttle service to and from the Cloverdale Fairgrounds in Surrey. West Vancouver Blue Bus will have coaches standing by to handle the anticipated crowds from the fireworks and Lilith Fair at Ambleside Park.

SeaBus will run 15 minute service until 6:30pm.

Expo and Millennium Lines will operate Saturday service (first train from King George Station at 6:08am; last train from Waterfront at 1:15am) and will augment service during midday and evening to accommodate the crowds from the downtown festivities and fireworks shows. The Canada Line will run its peak service from 9am-8pm.

No West Coast Express service—either train or TrainBus—will be running on July 1.

And service will return to the regular weekday schedules on Friday, July 2.
