Translink Annouces FREE Transit All Day Today

Translink has announced all modes of transit services will be free today across metro Vancouver after temporarily closing down the Expo Line between Joyce Station and Waterfront Station earlier this morning.

The closure ultimately left thousands of commuters to suffer long delays and struggling to find an alternate way of getting to work or school.

According to Translink, the service interruption was caused by a fire when sparks from a grinder that employees were using for routine maintenance ignited a small fire that burned an important communication cable.

To compensate for the issues, Translink will offer free services for the remainder of the day – an unusual move by the transportation provider.
