Update: I Love Transit Night 2012 shuttle bus pickup details finalized

Update: I Love Transit Night 2012 shuttle bus pickup details finalized

RSVP and you could take this vintage bus from our fleet to the night!

Unfortunately TRAMS wasn’t able to secure insurance for transporting passengers on the bus, so the ride is now cancelled! But the bus will still be parked at the event for you to board and examine :)

Just wanted to update everyone on the I Love Transit Night shuttle bus pickup location!

(Quick catchup: I Love Transit Night is at Bonsor Recreation Complex in Burnaby, Wednesday July 18, 2012, 6pm. Full details here!)

For those who don’t know, we usually get a special bus to take riders to I Love Transit Night. It’s not necessary to ride the bus to get to the event—it’s just a short walk from Metrotown Station this year—but we always offer it since everyone enjoys it so much!

This year, we have a 1962 vintage bus from TRAMS, the Transit Museum Society. And now we have the details on where they will pick up!

Where: Patterson Station, in the bay for the 125
When: Wednesday July 18, 2012 — it will be parked there from 5 to 5:30pm for sure, then leaving for the event sometime between 5:30-5:45pm.

Remember! Important!

Two key notes:

  • the bus can only take 42 passengers,
  • and it’s sadly not wheelchair accessible.

However, those with mobility issues can still get there from the very accessible Metrotown SkyTrain Station. There’s elevators and everything!
