There are loads of festivities and, hopefully, relaxing planned for this weekend. In order to make your three days off as smooth as possible, it’s a good idea to take note of changes and additions to transit service over the next few days. Here goes…

Celebration of Light

  • Rush-hour level of SkyTrain service
  • More SeaBus sailings
  • Extra buses to and from Downtown before and after the event
  • The #5, #6, #22, C21, and C23 will be rerouted between 7:30 p.m. and 11 p.m.
  • A special West Coast Express train for the finale (Aug 6)
  • Extra transit police and city police on duty
  • There  will also be a bike valet – See www.vancouverfireworks.ca for more info

Vancouver Pride Parade

  • The #5 and #6 will be rerouted between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.
  • C21 will be rerouted between 6 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.
  • Extra city police on duty
  • Check translink.ca before you go for the latest transit info
  • See www.vancouverpride.ca for more info

B.C. Day

All transit services will run on a Sunday/holiday schedule for B.C. Day (Aug 1), meaning single-zone FareCards work in all zones.  And if you have an adult FareCard, West Coast Express 28-Day Pass or Employee Transit Pass, you can take five children or one adult and four children on transit with you for free!

Have a great and safe long weekend everyone!
