Cupcakes for Canada Line’s birthday!

Cupcakes for Canada Line’s birthday!

Amelia Shaw, TransLink's manager of public consultation, handed out cupcakes on a tray.

As mentioned, we had a little celebration today at Broadway-City Hall Station for Canada Line’s one year anniversary!

It was a lovely sunny day, and TransLink staff handed out many mini cupcakes to riders and well-wishers. Lots of people dropped by to say hello, and we were out of cupcakes by 1:45 p.m.! Here’s some photos from the event.

The cupcake tent was set up next to the entrance of Broadway-City Hall Station.
Cupcakes!
Ken Hardie, TransLink's director of communications, handed out cupcakes as well.
Vincent, one of our public consultation staff, jumped on a 99 B-Line to hand out cupcakes!
So many cupcakes!

Former TransLink CEO Pat Jacobsen and Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie were there.
And I met SkyTrain superfan Lucas, who you may remember from my earlier SkyTrain cake post! He had a new SkyTrain toy that was built out of solid wood by his aunt :)
More cupcakes being handed out!
