TransLink, Ferries expand holiday hours
A guide to holiday schedules for buses, SeaBuses, West Coast Expresses, SkyTrains and ferries.
Getting home for the holidays isn't always about reuniting with family. Sometimes it just means making it back from a marathon shopping trip with both arms and your sanity intact -- and on that front, TransLink and BC Ferries feel your pain.
Both companies have laid on extra service over the holiday period.
TransLink has posted a full holiday schedule. The highlights:
- On the holidays themselves, you only need a one-zone fare to travel across all zones all day.
- In general, transit during the holidays will follow normal schedules and fares for that day of the week, with some notable exceptions. You can still plan your own trip with TransLink's Planner. Customer Information answers questions at 604-953-3333.
