Remembrance Day 2014 holiday service

remembrancedayRemembrance Day is Tuesday, November 11.

Bus, SkyTrain, and SeaBus will run on a Sunday/holiday schedule. West Coast Express and TrainBus will not operate. Bus routes may change slightly to accommodate parades and services.

Remember, on a holiday, you only need a single-zone fare to travel in all zones all day!

Service returns to regular weekday schedules for all modes on Wednesday, November 12.

Veterans, Armed Forces and Coast Guard members ride free!

In honour of Remembrance Day, and the contribution our veterans have made to this country, TransLink and its operating companies are providing transit — free of charge — to veterans and members of the Armed Forces and Coast Guard.

Veterans include Ordinary and Life Members of the Royal Canadian Legion, the Army, Navy and Air Force Veterans and the Korean Veterans Association. Veterans just have to show their membership card or appear in uniform to receive free transportation. Free service does not apply to associate members of these organizations.

Free transit applies to bus, SkyTrain, SeaBus and HandyDart service and the Canada Line YVR-AddFare is included.

A moment of silence at 11 am

The SkyTrain, SeaBus and buses will observe a moment of silence at 11 am (or the stop reached closest to the hour). All TransLink and operating company properties will also half-mast their flags from sunrise to sunset on November 11.

Remembrance Day Parade reroutes

Remembrance Day parades and services in Vancouver, Burnaby, North Vancouver, New Westminster, Richmond, Port Coquitlam, White Rock, and Aldergrove means some buses will be temporarily rerouted on Tuesday, November 11.

For a complete list of reroutes please check the Transit Alerts [1] tab on our Alerts and Advisories [2] page.
