TransLink gives Metro Vancouver students free rides this week
Elementary and high school students in Metro Vancouver don’t have to pay for their transit rides this week.
From today to Friday (October 4 to 8), TransLink is letting youth who would normally pay concession fares get on the bus, SkyTrain, and SeaBus for free.
High schoolers must show a valid GoCard to take advantage of the offer.
It’s part of the annual International Walk to School Week.
According to a September 22 press release from TransLink, the aim of the week of free rides is to inform kids about transportation options and to facilitate school field trips.
