Transit free, SkyTrain service extended on New Year’s Eve
New Year’s Eve revellers can look forward to free use of the transit system and extended hours of service in the Vancouver area.
After 5 p.m. on December 31, passengers riding by bus, SkyTrain, or SeaBus will not have to pay fare, according TransLink. The no-charge period runs until service ends for the day.
SkyTrain service will run for an extra hour that night, with the last train leaving Waterfront Station for King George Station at 2:16 a.m.
On the Canada Line, the last train from Waterfront Station to YVR-Airport Station leaves at 2:05 a.m. Meanwhile, the last train from Waterfront Station to Richmond-Brighouse Station leaves at 2:15 a.m.
Bus service will follow typical schedules for the day, but extra buses will be added on some routes to handle higher demand, TransLink says.
The NightBus final departure times from downtown Vancouver will not change for New Year’s Eve.
SeaBus service will be extended by one hour with final sailings from Waterfront at 2:16 a.m. and Lonsdale Quay at 2:06 a.m.
