The March 2011 Buzzer is now out!

The March 2011 Buzzer is now out!

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

This issue doesn’t really have a theme—it’s just a bit of an update on new and interesting things happening around the system.

For example, we have a nice big list of discounts you can get on Vancouver attractions if you show your transit pass or ticket, which you can also find here!

There’s also a note about our TransLink Twitter service being made permanent, and an update on the bus reroutes for CelticFest and its associated St. Patrick’s Day Parade, during the period of March 16-20, 2011.

There are also a few more photos to share from the 25th anniversary of SkyTrain, which we’ve of course been celebrating on the blog since December 11! (See past posts here!) Photos kindly shared by Alan M, Rob Chew, and David Allen have all wound their way into the Buzzer newsletter.

And for fun, I put in some of the fun poll results that we’ve had over the last couple of months here on the blog, as many print readers have probably never seen them! Make sure to take a look at my fancy graphs :)

Again, we are proud to have a cover from a local illustrator: this time it’s Patrick Wong. Thanks Patrick!

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 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 Thursday, March 24 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.
