Take the 16 PNE special bus every day of the PNE Fair, August 20 to September 5 (closed Mondays, except Labour Day). Please note the PNE Fair’s continuing to operate with limited capacity this this year, so they’re recommending you purchase your date-specific tickets early.

This is in addition to the usual transit service in the area, which includes the 14 Hastings / UBC16 29th Avenue Station / ArbutusR5 Hastings St RapidBus210 Upper Lynn Valley / Burrard Station, and 211 Seymour / Burrard Station.
