Get on board the Bus Stop Hop on Saturday, August 18, 2012!

The Bus Stop Hop is an annual Amazing-Race-style event to showcase accessible public transport in Metro Vancouver. Spinal Cord Injury BC organizes it every year and here’s how they describe it:

Inspired by the Amazing Race, the BSH is a one-day, team-based event that has participants racing across the city, using accessible transportation, completing fun activities and collecting points. What makes BSH unique is its focus on accessible transit and its team structure: four teammates consisting of two able-bodied people and two people using wheelchairs or mobility aids. Teams race around the city, answering trivia questions and scoring points as they hit all the hot spots using everything Translink has to offer. Teams are going green for 2012 with sustainable transportation tips and eco-friendly finds along the way!

BSH is a free event and a great way to get to know Vancouver’s transit system. Challenge yourself, beat your peers and discover your amazing, accessible city on August 18th.

To register, contact Kelly at 604-326-1221 or kwittig@sci-bc.ca. You can still sign up if you’re interested in participating but don’t have a team—you can be matched up!
