We got places to go and people to see. Whether that’s to and from work, a visit with an old friend, or a hockey game at Rogers Arena, TransLink will get you there!

While you’re riding with us, we want you to have a safe and pleasant journey. That means following transit etiquette and holding on because safety is fundamental — and it starts with you. Scroll through the slideshow above to see what the tips are.

We’re also excited to launch a new experiential marketing campaign on transit — featuring octopuses, monkeys and sloths — reminding everyone to be safe! You’ll see wrapped buses, as well as decals in interesting places such as the ceilings, poles and straps of buses, on windows, and staircases at SkyTrain stations.

Here’s a sneak peak! Want to spot ’em? The fleet numbers are #2510, 2511, 2110, 8150 and 16001.

    Is this really a good idea? On crowded buses (99, 43, etc.), if I don’t stand up a block before reaching my stop, I won’t be able to reach the door by the time the driver decides it was too long and moves on. I see why this might work in buses that are not too full, but for crowded buses waiting until the bus stops means I won’t get out on my stop at all.

    After the RapidBus launches can we please keep up this culture of full body bus wraps!

    The Art busses, Pride busses and even some of the ads are very beautiful. Would be awesome to continue seeing beauty across the system.

    My nanny kids like seeing the animals. The octopus, the butterflies that the Vancouver Aquarium ads had over the summer and the cat and dog of the new Science World ads are or were big hits. So now we have new ones to watch out for in the monkeys and the sloths. Thanks!

    You mentioned fleet numbers of where these ads are on. Most of us go by route number like 323, 321 etc. I have no idea what the fleet # is for the bus I take unless I am at the bus stop and see it on the sign. Also I agree with Jonathan. You pretty well have to get up and make your way to the door before the bus stops. the driver can’t always see the person trying to make their way to the door.
