It’s that pumpkin spice time of year again!

The leaves are taking on a kaleidoscope of colours and the air is cool, crisp and fresh. And, of course, the kids are back in school!

To celebrate the season Translink is holding an I Love Transit Week from October 1st to 5th. As a result, they offer free bus travel for students and teachers from Kindergarten to Grade 12!

What’s more, randomly-selected Metro Vancouver school classes have the chance to win Compass Cards loaded with a DayPass for their entire class to travel on a day of their choice during the rest of the school year.

Winners will also receive a TravelSmart Transit 101 workshop, I Love Transit Week swag and more!

One winning class will also be selected for an all-inclusive field trip to attend I Love Transit Camp on October 25!

This unique opportunity for students in grades 3 through 12 provides a behind-the-scenes look at TransLink operating companies’ facilities. As such, they’ll get an exclusive tour the bus and SkyTrain yards, and much more! 

Translink: I love Transit Week

This year’s I Love Transit Week theme is Connections—the future of transportation in Metro Vancouver!

In addition to students, Translink is offering everyone a chance to win! Tell them why you love transit and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a Monthly Pass on your Compass Card.

They will showcase transit stories on the Buzzer blog all week! Send yours to [email protected] with the subject line “I Love Transit Stories” or tweet it using the hashtag #ILoveTransit.

Be on the look out for the special I Love Transit issue of The Buzzer on the system starting on Friday, September 28th.

Colour the illustration and you could win a Monthly Pass on your Compass Card! They will draw one for those under 15 years of age and one for adults. Stay tuned for contest details.

Happy riding!
