Today’s forecast…holiday service schedules and winter service changes!

Winter is just around the corner and we’re getting into the holiday spirit by rolling out our holiday service schedules and winter service changes.

These seasonal changes include:

  • A two-week holiday schedule – December 21, 2015 to January 3, 2016;
  • Christmas, Boxing Day and New Year’s Eve schedules; and
  • Winter service changes – starting January 4, 2016.

Don’t forget that service changes can affect many routes, so know before you go and use TransLink’s trip planner to check if your route has changed.

Let’s take a look at some of the highlights:

  • Routes serving schools and post-secondary institutions adjusted to better reflect ridership during two- week special holiday schedule.
  • Christmas and Boxing Day will run on a Sunday/holiday service schedule. Some routes modified to provide more frequent service.
  • Free service on New Year’s Eve after 5:00 pm until 5:00 am on January 1 – with extended bus service hours.
  • Welcome back bus service along Capilano Road starting January 4, 2016 as part of our winter service changes.

    Having a 2 week holiday schedule is a brilliant idea. It saves a lot of money, and can give the bus drivers some much needed time off.

    Question: We know the ticket is good for 90 minutes and this is relevant particularly for skytrains and seabus as the last tap to exit has to be within 90 minutes. But what happens when there are service breakdowns resulting in going past the 90 minutes? Are we forced to buy exit tickets though it is no fault of ours and going past the 90 minutes is due to service breakdown of skytrain or bus or seabus?
