A new 10-episode season of What’s the T: the TransLink Podcast with Jawn Jang is here! And we’re excited to kick it off with an interview the voice of SkyTrain.

You hear the voice everyday as it narrates your SkyTrain commute, telling you what the next station is (I know you’re reading this in the voice), which side the doors will open, and where to change trains and exit for bus connections. But have you wondered who the voice belongs to?

It’s Laureen Regan, a voice actor from Calgary! In the episode, she shares how she got the job and if she had to audition, what it’s like for her hearing herself riding the SkyTrain, what she finds most interesting about the job, and if she gets recognized.

Stream it now on Apple PodcastsSpotifyPocket Casts, and where ever you get your podcasts! Find episode transcripts on The Buzzer.

This new season promises to bring listeners once again behind the scenes to uncover the real voices and stories that drive our transit system forward.

In the upcoming episodes, Jawn rides along with Transit Security to learn more about their unique role in supporting customers. He also finds out what’s the deal with single tracking and how we plan for large concerts like Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour in December and events like FIFA World Cup 26.

What about how bus routes are numbered? Jawn digs into this too. He also visits our Customer Information team to learn about our popular Twitter account and finds out where SkyTrain cars sleep at night.
