i_love_transit_2015_banner_300x90It’s I Love Transit Week again in Metro Vancouver! Every year TransLink devotes a week to why we love/like transit.

Do you like not having to drive and enjoy the free time you have on transit to read or use your phone? Perhaps you love transit because it’s good for the environment? Or maybe you just like the view from the SeaBus? Whatever you love/like about transit, TransLink wants to hear about it. Snap a photo, shoot a video, write a Haiku, draw a picture, perform a song, or however you want to show transit some love then share that on social media with the #Ilovetransit hashtag between August 31st and September 4th.

    Canada line!

  60. Michelle says:

    I think the form of the question contributes to problems in discussing urban mobility.
    My favourite form of transit is fixed route with non-miniscule stop spacing, frequent all-day service, and capacity that doesn’t compromise the effective frequency. (e.g. a full bus passing by every 5 minutes for more than 20 minutes before you get one you can board, sardine-style, does not provide frequent service for all customers, but that’s not due to the fact that it is a bus.)

  61. dali says:

    skytrain canada line for the win

  62. Peter Conroy says:

    bus just because they take me so far around the city

  63. michael h says:

    I love the Canadaline! It makes my commute to work so easy!

  64. Lisa G says:

    I work two jobs in two different cities from where I live….this means I ride the bus, the Canada line and the expo/millennium lines! out of them all, I must say the Original expo line is my fav – you are above ground and get to see all of the magnificent mountains, waterways and bridges:)

  65. Brenda says:

    Skytrain

  73. AC says:

    Canada Line rocks for an easy to-and-from YVR!

  74. Lucie B says:

    I love all forms of transit, but the Skytrain wins for being the quickest. I do love the bus in the theory, but in practice it is problematic (as Michelle at 8:25 described).

  89. Sonya T says:

    Fave by far is always the Seabus, but as I no longer live in North Van, I gotta say I love taking the little shuttle buses all around my current city of Langley. It’s so gorgeous, almost like a cute little tour. My 6-year-old is obsessed with Translink and everything that comes with it (trains, buses, boats, oh my!) I’m kinda entering for him <3

    Seabus has a great view but I love Skytrain because it is quick and efficient.
