Twenty-years ago this month (April 1 to be exact!), TransLink began operating with a strong vision: to remain a unique, made-in-B.C. solution, unmatched by any transportation authority in the world.
We’re inviting you to celebrate our 20th anniversary with us!
As a thank you for choosing us to get around and allowing us to serve the region over the past 20 years, we’ll be hosting four pop-up photo booths throughout April.
- Friday, April 5 at Waterfront Station, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
- Saturday, April 13 at Party for the Planet, Surrey Civic Plaza near Surrey Central Station, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
- Wednesday, April 17 at Metrotown Station, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
- Thursday, April 25 at Lougheed Town Centre Station, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
It’s a rare opportunity to snag a FREE photo with the “Vancouver icons” background, so bring your friends and strike your best pose.
On The Buzzer blog, look out for stories that celebrate our shared transit history starting on Monday. We’ll have a contest for your chance to win a TransLink Store prize pack. Finally, we have new merchandise that pays homage to the ’90s.
Transportation shaped Metro Vancouver’s past. Together, we’ll shape the future of how we move and live.
Lol isn’t it funny that TransLink’s birthday lands on April 1 — April Fools’ Day?!
I mean, a little bit, I guess…if that’s the kind of humour that floats your boat? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
April marks the start of the fiscal year. That’s why we have some good company when it comes to April 1 birthdays!
Apple celebrates its birthday on this day, so does the Wrigley candy company and Gmail. And fun fact — Nunvaut was created on April 1, 1999 too!
