5 Transit trips to make this weekend

We’re back with another iteration of TransLink 101!

Cambie and Broadway

The forecast is in, and it’s looking like grey sky and rain for this weekend. Don’t let the gloomy weather stop you from getting out and enjoying all that Metro Vancouver has to offer. Here’s a quick list of five fun transit accessible activities to get you out of the house.

1. TravelSmart to the Art – Show your validated TransLink fare and receive a discounted admission to the Vancouver Art Gallery.

2. Dine Out Vancouver Festival – Check out Canada’s largest food and drink festival. With over 277 restaurants participating, there’s something for everyone with many restaurants located on, or just off the SkyTrain line!

3. Ice Skate at Robson Square – This free (fee for skate & helmet rental if required) activity is located just steps away from Expo/Millennium and Canada Line stations. Psst! Robson Square is also steps away from the Vancouver Art Gallery! Why not make a day of it by doing both!?

4. Gluten Free Expo – Located at the Vancouver Convention Centre East, just steps from Waterfront Station (terminus for the SeaBus, West Coast Express, Expo/Millennium, and Canada Lines) this event is the perfect opportunity to discover, sample, and save on hundreds of gluten free products.

5. Hot Chocolate Festival – Get your chocolate fix at the 5th annual Hot Chocolate Festival. Twenty-four different venues and 57 different flavours! Check out the website for a walking map to assist you in getting around.
