    Off topic, do you guys know if U-Passes are still accepted? Because me, and another student had an incident while boarding the bus. Once I showed my upass, the driver skeptically looked and said it was not valid, despite telling him I got it from Douglas College. The other student had a rougher experience, the driver rejected his upass because “we no longer accept upasses anymore” and told him to pay the adult fare. Is this actually true, or just a ridiculous piece of misinformation?

    Driver of 335 – ‪#‎S7371‬ Licence plate FA3427 -at ~4:30 today, October17, 2014 while driving in Surrey, BC – did not like the fact that I was sitting beside him as he wanted to merge into lane – I had the right of way yet he came into my lane causing me to move into oncoming traffic – I honked my horn as I thought he did not see me – but then I realized he did see me as he continued to drive dangerously pulling up again on the right side of me 2 more times in traffic, and pushing me into oncoming traffic – I feel my life was put into jeopardy by this bus driver as he handled the bus very dangerously to push me into oncoming traffic 3 times, plus he pulled up too close to me as if to ram my car 2 times. This should not have happened – this driver acted very dangerous and could have cost me my life.

    Hi all,

    Starting today, June 6, 2016, Customer Relations (CR) and Customer Information (CI – the folks on Twitter!) are merging into one call centre.

    This means when you call 604-953-3333 you will still get transit information, but you can also leave feedback at this number as well.

    Thanks!
