We celebrate Canada’s 147th birthday next Tuesday!

SkyTrain, SeaBus, and bus will all be running on a Sunday/holiday schedule, but TransLink will be extending services to help get customers get where they need to go.

Customers are advised to check their route before they go and remember, it’s a one-zone fare to travel across all zones!

Service returns to regular weekday schedules for all modes on Wednesday, July 2.

The nitty-gritty!

Bus services will operate Sunday/holiday hours and service, except as noted:

  • Customers going to the Canada Day event in Cloverdale can take the 320 at Surrey Central Bay 2; 12 additional shuttles will leave Cloverdale following the fireworks.
  • “Saturday” late night trips will operate for the 319, 320 and 321 to connect with the last train from Waterfront to King George.
  • To accommodate Canada Day festivities across the region, there will be increased frequency or minor detours on some routes, including multiple routes in downtown Vancouver and the 135, 160, 209, 210, 211, 240, 246, 250, 250A, 257, 320, C43 and C47.

Canada Line will operate Sunday/holiday hours and service, plus:

  • “Rush-hour” service will begin in the afternoon, with every available train in service after the fireworks in downtown Vancouver to clear people out of the area as quickly as possible.

    It is no doubt that Canada is one of the greatest nations around the globe. This therefore means that there is no way that we can fail to commemorate its birthday.
