This Holiday season will be different for all of us this year. If you are travelling on TransLink over the Holidays, here are some changes you need to know. With the holiday season here, British Columbia has made it mandatory for masks to be worn on all transit vehicles. In support of provincial health orders, TransLink will not be providing free and additional/extended transit services on New Year’s Eve. Customers can continue to use the transit system with their usual payment method, and the service will continue to operate on a regular weekday schedule. Masks are mandatory on board
We’ve all had to make peace with the reality that the holidays will be a lot different this year. It can be a tough pill to swallow for those who depend on this time of year to spend meaningful time with family and friends. It’s also Christmas! And Hanukkah! And Kwanzaa! It’s a time to celebrate your friendships and share gifts and enjoy being around people you love. So the fact that there are limits to what we can do and how we can travel kind of sucks. But like most negative things in life, there’s a silver lining.
