TransLink Events Calendar

In our discussions regarding our new mobile site a reoccurring comment is to make it simple to use. Many of us lead busy lives, and we can use any help we can get to streamline them. Our hope with this blog is to provide you with an easily digestible, informative and fun way to learn about all things transit in Metro Vancouver (and beyond sometimes).

Keeping in the spirit of simplicity and making sure the public is informed of TransLink activities, the TransLink Events Calendar was created. The idea is to put all TransLink-related events like meetings, promotions, schedule changes, transit training, public consultation and community outreach in one place. Not a bad idea, huh!

Moving forward, there will be more events added to the calendar including I Love Transit Night, which will be added to the calendar this week! This is something new for TransLink, so I’ll be passing on your feedback on the content, layout or anything else about this calendar you think could make it better!

    I like it! I like the design and that each individual event has a map attached to it. Any chance we can get an iCal feed? Or whatever to get it into my online calendar, so that I don’t (necessarily) have to visit the website to see upcoming events.

    Hi Richard: Good question! Our team is actually working on “sharing” these events in multiple different ways/on multiple different platforms. Stay tuned!

    Ahem. Is “calender” the Canadian spelling of “calendar”?

    A few thoughts…

    Provide a facility where people can submit events so it can be approved by the moderators to go on the calender. For example, transit riders need to be reminded of the monthly critical mass rides that messes up transit.

    Is there a reason why there is no RSS feed? This a great way to see when new things are added.

    BTW…. many Lower Mainland municipalities already have calenders where you can find special events (ie community parades) that might impact transit.

    To encourage people to go through the Faregate kiosk display today…. they are single tracking Skytrain service West of Broadway station this morning.

    Hi ???: That would be sorta funny if true! Hopefully everything returns to normal on the SkyTrain soon.
