I Love Transit Week 2010: meetup wrapup

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 :)
