The idea to have Vancouver actor Seth Rogen as a guest voice on transit came from our customers and the media. That’s why we want to hear from you again!
Help pick what nuggets of Seth wisdom will be on transit next by taking the poll below. We’ll start playing one or two of the highest voted announcements on transit next week!
Hey #Vancouver, it’s your transit! Help us pick the next Seth announcements. Which one do you want to hear?

Seth volunteered to be a guest voice on transit earlier this summer and results so far have been fantastic! Besides mentions on The Tonight Show, BBC, Fast Company and more, transit users have been sharing their love of Seth’s humorous take on transit dos and don’ts.

Today on the Sky Train a group of five got on a busy train with backpacks. Then, like an angel from the heavens, @Sethrogen's PSA about backpack train etiquette plays. All five had a chuckle and took them off. It was a beautiful @TransLink sight to behold.

It's okay I heard @Sethrogen's voice on the bus and all frustration melted away

Seth’s voice can be heard until the end of October at most SkyTrain stations on all three lines (Expo, Millennium and Canada Line) as well on buses across Metro Vancouver (up to bus operators discretion). You might have heard Seth say something like this:
Reminder! Seats closest to the doors are for persons with disabilities, seniors and those who need it. People appreciate you offering these seats to them. It’s worth remembering that some people have disabilities that aren’t always obvious. If someone asks you to give up a seat because they have a disability, please take their word for it.
That’s right. Seth has been helping transit users at SkyTrain stations and buses on their travels with his take on courtesy seats, cellphone use and more!
Each announcement will run for roughly three weeks or longer. To find out more about the Seth announcements, leave a comment below.
