The September 2012 Buzzer is on the system

The September 2012 Buzzer is now out!

As always, you can find it free of charge on buses, SkyTrain, SeaBus, West Coast Express or as a .pdf here.

This month’s Buzzer is all about the upcoming September 3 service changes, which we talked about this week. Make sure you’re up to date on the changes!

There’s also a note about the increased penalties for fare evasion (those start September 4), recycling your newspapers, and the Buzzer’s handy community events form!

And as always, our illustration is by a local illustrator. Say hello to Stefan Tosheff and his terrific illustration of a bus driver!

Remember to enter the FareCard contest too! You can win a free FareCard in every issue of the Buzzer: read the issue, then email in your info and the answer to the trivia question by Monday, Sept 24 at 9 a.m.. We’ll pick a winner from all the correct answers, and that person will be notified by phone shortly after the draw.

And we’d love to hear what you think about the print Buzzer. Your contributions help to make the Buzzer better!

    I’ve noticed the box-like security cameras installed on one of the first-generation Mark IIs car #260, is TransLink currently expanding the installation of security cameras on the rest of the 1st-gen Mark II fleet and possibly the Mark Is?

    Hi Zack: Here’s the answer from SkyTrain on your question.

    The camera on car 260 is a prototype assessment that was installed before we received the new cars (Mark II- 300 series) back in 2009. At this time, there is no plan to expand the prototype to the rest of the Mark II or the Mark I cars.
