    @ Translink and Vancouver Art Gallery

    Thanks for working together on this. I’m glad that you consider transit customers worth giving a discount to.

    :^) I hate to sound ungrateful, but I wonder why Vancouver Art Gallery only does it for this occasion, and not all the time.

    Hi Eugene: That’s a good question and one you’d have to ask the gallery. I know this is the first we’ve worked with the art gallery in this respect.
