Get to celebrations and home safely with Canada Day 2019 holiday transit service!

Making my way downtown, walking fast… because I want to see the firework show!  🎉

We know that Canada Day celebrations are a big thing, cause we are excited for them too! That’s why on Monday July 1st, the SkyTrain, SeaBus and buses will be running on the holiday schedule, but with additional service to help you get to the celebrations and getting you home safely. 🤗

Because of this spectacular event, that also means that there will be changes to our regular bus routes and access to SkyTrain stations downtown. Don’t worry, it’s just for Canada Day! Read more »

Kids ride free on buses for iWALK, October 3–7, 2016

Screen Shot 2016-09-28 at 10.05.17 AMFACT! The majority of school-aged children and youth in our country are not getting enough physical activity to meet the current Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines.

“Children and youth aged 5 to 17 spent an average of 8 hours and 27 minutes, or nearly two-thirds of their waking hours, being sedentary each day.”

That is why it’s so important to encourage active transportation from a young age!logo

iWALK (International Walk to School Week) is one week out of a month-long, global event that celebrates active transportation, gets kids AND parents out of cars and introduces communities to safe routes for kids to take to school.

To support this fantastic initiative, TransLink is offering free bus travel for students in kindergarten through to grade 12 on any and all bus routes from October 3 to October 7.

Free travel will not include SkyTrain, SeaBus or West Coast Express this year.

Put your walking shoes on and get trip ready with our Trip Planner, use Next Bus or reach out to our Customer Information team on Twitter or by phone at 604-953-3333.

Please note: Regular fares apply to adults accompanying children and youth on buses.

Talk to your school or visit the iWALK website for more information.
