I Love Transit Week 2010: meetup wrapup

Everyone playing transit bingo! In this game, you had to find others who fit the transit-related descriptions on your bingo sheet (ie: who had never been on the SeaBus? Who's been on transit in Paris?)

Wow—we had an incredible time at I Love Transit Night yesterday! Thank you to every one of the 65 people who came out to the Heritage Grill!

We played a round of transit bingo, a game where teams competed to board the bus the fastest, and a rousing round of transit trivia. And everyone enjoyed buttons, stickers, colouring books, cutouts, old books of Buzzers, and even a working Super Express train set, thanks to Jason Vanderhill!

I’ve posted some photos above and below, but do check out all my photos of the evening over at the Buzzer’s Flickr account. Also, feel free to e-mail me your pictures and I will add the links to this post. Tim Choi has already sent in a few images!

Transit trivia! The question asked: how many stations are on the Canada Line? In this photo, everyone is counting in their heads :)

    Should I email my adress and postal code for the buttons?

  • By Jhenifer Pabillano - Buzzer Editor, July 16, 2010 @ 4:38 pm

    Daniel, don’t worry about it. You already e-mailed me your address when you made your request for buttons earlier.

    Hey I know that last poster! I own a full size version of it given to me by a very special person!

    The meet up was great. I had a lot of fun and enjoyed meeting all the other enthusiasts.

    Does anyone have a picture of that Skytrain rail? Was that coated or recasted from brass?

  • By Jhenifer Pabillano - Buzzer Editor, July 20, 2010 @ 11:17 am

    Gah – I forgot to photograph it! It was coated with chrome and then the SkyTrain logos were silkscreened on.

    Well I think your going to need to make some more of those paper weights. I think they will be very popular. Perhaps put a few of them on eBay.

    They’re a bit of a special item, but I’ll see what I can do :)

    When will this years I love transit week meet up be?

  • By Jhenifer Pabillano - Buzzer Editor, February 18, 2011 @ 2:49 pm

    Probably in July again. No firm date yet. Again, it will be announced on the blog when we have the details in place.

    Will there still be a I love transit night meet up this year since your going on maternity leave?

    Ric: yes, there will be.
