The Lower Mainland has come a long way from wobbly trolley buses. Today, the transit service covers 1,800 square kilometers with daily routes from sea to pavement and beyond. On most routes, service is provided seven days a week, 18 to 20 hours a day. Major routes have buses operating every 10 minutes, or even less during peak periods, with some arriving as often as every four to six minutes. TransLink includes all aspects of public transportation with the Coast Mountain Bus, the SkyTrain rapid transit, the SeaBus Passenger Ferry, the West Coast Express Rail and the Albion Car Ferry.
To get on any of these modes of transportation, you will first need to buy a fare ticket. Once it’s done, one ticket can take you from the bus to the SkyTrain to the SeaBus, ensuring transit customers can make quick and easy transfers throughout Greater Vancouver's three fare zones. Fares are based on a three-zone system on weekdays, with a one-zone fare for evenings and weekends. Tickets are date and time stamped when purchased. Those who often take the bus might want to consider the monthly pass or a book of tickets.
TransLink also provides service for those with disabilities. The SeaBus, West Coast Express, B-Line, Community Shuttle and SkyTrain systems are fully accessible and most buses either have low-floor access or are lift-equipped. HandyDart, a service for people who need help using transit, is also operated by TransLink: it includes special vehicles and service for those with special needs.
