Ride into the future with TransLink and Transport 2050 at the PNE Fair this summer! 

For over a century, the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) has showcased the best of Vancouver to the rest of Canada and the world at its annual summer fair.

This summer, from August 17 – September 2 (closed Monday, August 19 and 26), TransLink will be on site at the PNE Fair, bringing you the past, present, and future of transportation to Metro Vancouver!

Join us at the Transport 2050 Expo, featuring a 3D “MicroCity” animated model of Metro Vancouver and an immersive virtual reality experience. Check out the Transport 2050 Engagement Bus and take our survey for a chance to win tickets to that night’s show.

Our Transport 2050 Expo will also feature a TransLink Store pop-up shop and fun, interactive exhibits and displays from our partners.

Stay tuned to The Buzzer blog and TransLink’s social media channels in the coming weeks for more details and an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look before it opens.

Take transit to the PNE

The PNE Fair’s main entrance is located at the corner of Renfrew Street and Hastings Street in Vancouver, near bus stops for the 14 16, 95 B-Line, 210 and 211.

As always, in addition to the usual service in the area, we’ll be adding extra service to take you to and from the PNE. Look out for the special buses departing from Phibbs Exchange, 29th Avenue Station and Renfrew Station:

  • The 16 PNE special runs between the Expo Line’s 29th Avenue Station, the Millennium Line’s Renfrew Station and the Pacific Coliseum. Along this corridor, the extra service provides an additional 4-5 buses per hour between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 a.m.
  • The 210 PNE special runs between Phibbs Exchange and the Pacific Coliseum. Along this corridor, the extra provides an additional 2 buses per hour between 10 a.m. and midnight.

    Does it matter which colour Compass card you have, ie. magenta or orange v. blue?

    Can the 2-for-1 admission promotion be combined with other deals such as purchasing admission ticket online at a slight discount. And use that on the 2-for-1 admission day?
