While the calendar says today is Valentine’s Day, here at TransLink, it’s just one of our two annual celebrations of love. Our annual I Love Transit week shares interesting stories celebrating our riders, transit enthusiasts and generally all the things we love about transit! From Rodney and Darci tapping onto the SkyTrain en route to their nuptuals, to Nina and Jarred getting married on a TransLink bus, and Meghan and Steve unexpectedly finding love on transit, it’s no surprise that this busy and bustling public space ignites so many connections.
Let’s take a stroll down memory lane and check out these and some of the other amazing love stories that started on our system:
- Nina and Jarred: married on a bus
- Jeff and Nathaly: married on SkyTrain
- Rebekah Mahaffey on finding love on transit
- Meghan and Steve, who also found love on transit
- Rodney and Darci tapping onto the SkyTrain en route to their nuptuals
- A 351 love story followed by their 351 wedding!
- From the February 15, 2008 print Buzzer: a couple takes their wedding photos on transit!
- Two love stories sent in via comments in 2011
Love knows no bounds and can happen when we least expect it — don’t believe me? Just check out the pages of pages of I Saw You ads in the Georgia Straight, with sightings on all of our transit modes!

@CstJPonsioen For you and all the other Transit officers who work diligently to keep our transit system safe for everyone – thank you and Happy Heart’s Day. This is my photograph of an art installation in False Creek on a foggy day in January. @TransLink FYI – great officers. pic.twitter.com/PfsK4lFVJH
