Announcing – I Love Transit Week!
If you haven’t heard about I Love Transit, you’ve been missing out! Now in its sixth year, I Love Transit is the one week where we celebrate what we love about transit!
From August 25-29, the blog will be packed with interviews, essays, submissions from Buzzer readers sharing just why they love transit! In the past, we’ve had haikus, reflective essays, pictures, stories about finding love on transit, and even a song!
During the week, we’ll also have a vintage bus in Downtown Vancouver from TRAMS with a vintage bus operator for you to see. There will be buttons, contests, and more to thank everyone for riding transit! There will be a contest with the chance to win a three-zone FareCard too.
Not only that, we’ll be holding our first-ever I <3 Transit Camp on Tuesday, August 26! A small group of young riders will have an opportunity to visit the SkyTrain Operations and Maintenance Centre by Edmonds Station.
What’s in store? A chance to get a behind the scenes look at how we keep the system running! To top it all off, we’ll head to Waterfront Station for a tour of the SeaBus facilities, jump on a 40-foot bus and talk to Transit Police! It’ll be a fun day with food, games and hands-on activities.
“Sounds great, but how do I get into the camp?!”
We will be announcing an application process for children aged eight to 12 for a chance to win their way in! People say I have a good hunch and it’s telling me it will have something to do with telling us why you love transit. ;)
And as always we want to give you a platform to share your transit love! Send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll feature as many as we can on the Buzzer blog.
Feel free to be as creative with form and content as you like—haikus, essays, photos, videos, songs, podcasts, and the like are all fair game! We look forward to seeing your submissions.
More details about the vintage bus and I <3 Transit Camp will be announced very soon!
Psst…tell your friends!
