The December 2010 Buzzer is now out!

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

This issue talks about our winter service changes, which roll over on Monday, December 13. Make sure you have a look to see if your regular routes are affected!

You can also find out some tips for travelling in winter conditions, much as we’ve talked about on the blog before. And there’s a notice about our Christmas, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve (free rides after 5pm!) and New Year’s Day service.

Plus our history tidbit is about our ticket vending machines, and there’s a special appearance from a cheerful bus with a holiday greeting!

Again, we are happy to have a cover from a local illustrator: this time it’s Seiko Karakama. Great job, Seiko!

And 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, or grab this direct link to the December 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 Tuesday, January 4 at 9 a.m.. We’ll pick a winner from all the correct answers, and he or she will be notified by phone shortly after the draw.

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