Hello Buzzer readers! My name is Allen and will be a member of the TransLink communications team over the summer as its Student Communications Assistant.
Receiving that first pack of Concession FareSaver Tickets  is a significant milestone for any teenager in Metro Vancouver. It represents an increase in mobility and a new-found ability to travel anywhere by themselves — a taste of adulthood. Since I received my first pack of FareSavers, I’ve become hooked on transit and it is has become my primary means to get around.
Being both a Geography  and Communications  student at Simon Fraser University  has made me appreciative of the important role TransLink plays in the overall livability of our region by reducing our carbon footprint.
Three things about me:
- My favourite bus is the New Flyer  C40 in the Clean Air livery
- I am a huge fan of the Vancouver Canucks  and I play on a beer league hockey team called the Redshirts — an ode to Star Trek
- Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  and the Walking Dead  are my favourite television shows
I’m proud to call myself a transit geek and I look forward to sharing my enthusiasm for transit with you all over the next few months!
