Transit

We love transit. We love the buses, the skytrains, the views and the people. Did you know that August 5-9th was the sixth annual I Love Transit Week in Greater Vancouver? Transit really is a vital part of any effective transportation system and to celebrate transit in the Lower Mainland, Translink put together a fabulous week full of events and activities for everyone enjoyed. They even witnessed a bus wedding – how cool is that? Anyways, thinking about loving transit got us thinking more specifically about things we love about Translinks Buzzer blogs, which we wanted to share with you. Ahem.

Let’s start with this while it is hot off the press. The work that these folks do to encourage participation in public transit is really inspiring. This year they had an I Love Transit Night that broke records, witnessed a bus wedding and even got an interview with Nardwuar, the Human Serviette (Doot doola doot doo!)
