The August 2013 Buzzer is now on the system

I Love Transit 2013The I Love Transit edition of the Buzzer newsletter is now on the system!

As you may guess, most of the issue is devoted to all the things we love about transit. Like last year, half of the issue is actually a image that you can colour! Not only that, if you colour the Buzzer and send it into us, you could win one of two FareCards up for grabs. Not into colouring? Well, there are plenty of other I Love Transit contests on the blog as well as through TravelSmart.

The love continues on the flip side of the issue with an extremely cute story about a nice couple who met on the #3 bus and have fallen madly in love. If that wasn’t cute enough for you, there’s a story about a young boy of five years-old who says he WILL be a bus operator when he grows up and like to guess which number/line the buses and SkyTrains he sees out of parent’s car window.

We rounded out the issue with our usual FareCard contest, back issue and coming events.

Do you want numerous chances to with FareCards, read about love, transit, history and BC Day holiday service? Well, you’ll just have to pick up the latest issue or download the .pdf!

    Out of curiosity, how much does the Buzzer cost to produce (both printing, and all the labour behind it).

    Maybe an ad with a link to the website would be more cost effective? Greener too!

    Just a comment: I was a little surprised that there is absolutely no mention at all of the annual PNE Summer Fair, or of the ways to get to the PNE in the “August” print Buzzer…
    I’ve noticed less and less “useful” information being included in the print Buzzer…
    More contests, and general TransLink news…
    No notes about major detours, re-routes (I.e.: The Granville Mall detours & the Powell Street closures; just off the top of my head), Fare/Zones info, Bike rack info, accessible bus stops, Handypasses, Major destinations and how to get there, etc…
    Maybe it’s just me, but there used to be “real” information and updates in the Buzzer….

    @ Sean

    I’m fascinated that there has been no response. I agree with you. I tried to mention something similar before, so it’s not just you.
