The January 2011 Buzzer is now out!

The January 2011 Buzzer is now out!

The January 2011 Buzzer is now on board all buses, SeaBus, SkyTrain, and West Coast Express!

This issue talks about the 25th anniversary of SkyTrain, which we’ve been celebrating on the blog since December 11! There’s a short article about the opening, historic SkyTrain photos and memorabilia, a small set of trivia puzzles, and an updated list of SkyTrain “astronomical facts”!

(Btw: YES, I mixed up the answers to questions 1 and 3 in the trivia section. But luckily the answers are so distinct that you can figure out which is which!)

We’re also urging our customers to vote on the smart card naming contest, and to apply to attend the BC Youth Summit on Sustainable Transportation.

Plus our history tidbit is the InfoBuses that rolled around before the SkyTrain launched, dispensing info about the new integrated train-bus-SeaBus system!

Again, we are happy to have a cover from a local illustrator: this time it’s Allison Koberstein. Nice work, Allison!

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 January 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 Wednesday, January 27 at 9 a.m.. We’ll pick a winner from all the correct answers, and that person will be notified by phone shortly after the draw.

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