We continue to salt and sand bus loops and SkyTrain stations, but please use caution in these areas and remember to dress warmly in anticipation of potential delays.

Expect extra crowding on some routes To provide improved traction, many articulated buses have been switched with standard, 40 foot buses. This will mean some modified service, with increased crowding and the possibility of passups in some areas.

HandyDART is currently operating regular service.

A day in the life of Metro Vancouver transit

A streetcar in North Vancouver sets out for its first ride, 1906

A streetcar sets out for its first ride, 1906

A lot has changed over the last 125 years in this region and transit has changed right along with it!

Take a look at some of the Buzzer’s posts about our history.

Say hello to The Conductorettes! A group of 180 women from 1943 to 1975 blazing the trail in the industry as the first female operators.

Hop on the SkyTrain to the past for some memorabilia and collectables.

See how the interurban trams mapped transit for the entire region! (Psst. An interurban is like a street car only bigger and more powerful.)

And where are we now? Let’s find out! Watch a day in the life of our operating companies and some of the great staff that keep us moving year after year.

Stay tuned for more awesome 125 celebration posts on the Buzzer blog, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
