Like a kid on Christmas morning, I am giddy with excitement to announce the official kick-off of our 7th annual I Love Transit week!

Right on the heels of our 125 anniversary of transit in the region, we’re celebrating all that is transit for Metro Vancouver.

What do we have going on? Well, take a look!

September 1: I Love Transit Camp for kids (ages 8-12) at SkyTrain Operations and Maintenance Centre and Burnaby Transit Centre.

September 3: I Love Transit Camp for adults (age 13 and up) at Burnaby Transit Centre.

Feeling lucky?

Why not enter the the I Love Transit contest?!

This is your chance to show the world what you love about riding buses, SkyTrain, SeaBus and West Coast Express in Metro Vancouver.

I love transit because it helps me get me where I’m going without worrying things like gas prices or driving in gridlock traffic.

I use my commute for some “me time” whether that be reading, listening to music or enjoying the scenery whizzing past.

So, let’s get creative as you tell us why YOU love transit!

Snap a photo, write a Haiku, draw a picture, perform a song, or however you want to show transit some love then share that on social media with our hashtag.

The Prize!

  • A Monthly FareCard!
  • A cooler tote bag
  • A map
  • Buttons
  • A special secret prize!

  • One entry per person per day for each channel. Yes, you can enter up to three times in total!
