    Will there ever be the return of I love transit night?

    Hi Ric, unfortunately not this year :( Due to staffing and other events, we simply didn’t have the people power to make it happen this year. But we love that you love it and hope to have another night next year or maybe sooner!

    its unfortunate the “free transit” does not include skytrain. it is misleading. And for schools who took that oportunity to take kids out and get them exploring the city and hoping to use the skytrain or sea bus would have to cancel their trips.

    Hi Gloria, Now that fare gates are closed a Compass Card or Ticket is required to access SkyTrain and SeaBus stations. The cost and complexity of distributing Compass fares to schools across Metro Vancouver to provide this access would be significant. We support the initiative as we are able providing free bus travel for all students. Thank you.
