How TransLink is honouring veterans this Remembrance Day

To honour the sacrifices of those who have served and continue to serve our country and communities, TransLink is offering free transit for all services, including HandyDART, to veterans and first responders on Remembrance Day.

It’s free all day on buses and one accessible gate will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at all SeaBus terminals and SkyTrain stations.

If you’re a member of an eligible group, you just need to present your badge, military ID, Veteran’s Service Card — or appear in uniform — to get free transit without tapping your Compass Card.

TransLink is proud to honour our Canadian Veterans

Members of the Royal Canadian Legion will be back giving out poppies by donation at various transit hubs around the region.

Remembrance Day Service

Sunday/holiday service will be in effect on Remembrance Day; please note West Coast Express will not be operating that day.

On November 11, SkyTrain, SeaBus, and buses will pause services at 11 a.m. to observe a moment of silence. Buses will stop at the closest available stop at or near that time.

If you’re not a veteran or first responder, you’ll just need a 1-Zone fare to travel across the system.

The Access Transit Customer Care Office, Lost Property Office at Stadium–Chinatown Station, and the TransLink Customer Service Centre at Waterfront Station will be closed.

Transit services will return to regular Saturday schedules for all modes on November 12.
