Some transit history and a thank you card

Some transit history and a thank you card

A 1990 brochure featuring the transit system!

Every once in a while, myself and my colleagues receive some interesting content from readers in our email and snail-mail inboxes. Friend of the blog Jason Vanderhill sent me a few images of transit past. The first is of a 1990 brochure, the year of BC’s public transit centennial. The next is an image of a weekly transit pass from 1947.

Public Information Officer for TransLink, Drew Snider, received this photo and a card from the participants in last year’s Shinerama. Shinerama is a fundraiser for cystic fibrosis. Volunteers, like the ones in this photo, shined one of our community shuttles at UBC as part of the activities.

I always love getting transit-related photos/images. If you have some and would like to share them, please send them to me at thebuzzer@translink.ca.
