Kids Ride Free [2]

Every day is a great day to take transit, but there’s no better week to hop on a bus than I Love Transit week! From October 7–11, 2019, students in kindergarten through Grade 12 ride the bus for free!

It’s all part of our annual I Love Transit [3] celebration and our long-standing dedication of promoting transit use and active transportation to children [4].

Teachers! This is a perfect opportunity to take your class on a field trip using transit.

We ask teachers who are planning to take advantage of this week to plan any transit portion during off-peak hours, between 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

Please note that I Love Transit week is bus only and does not include SkyTrain, SeaBus or West Coast Express. As well, regular fares apply to teachers and adults accompanying eligible children on the system.

Want to plan a field trip for another time?

Enter our contest [5] to win up to 35 DayPasses for your entire class to travel on a day of your choice during the rest of the school year! Can’t wait? You can also purchase Compass Tickets for your entire class by emailing a request to bulkorders@translink.ca [6].

A DayPass provides unlimited transit use on all buses, SkyTrain and SeaBus for one day of your choice.

Don’t forget, as part of I Love Transit students from grade 3 through grade 12 can enter to win an all-inclusive field trip to attend I Love Transit Camp! [8]
