      For those who have only ever taken public transit to get to school or work, TransLink is now giving you another reason to commute.

      The local transportation authority has just launched “Dine the Line”, which is a food-and-drink-focused campaign that highlights some of the city’s top places to grab a bite or beer along its Skytrain stations.

      Created in partnership with WestCoastFood and several destination marketing groups, the initiative showcases restaurants and breweries in communities around Metro Vancouver.

      Commuters will be able to check out recommended dining spots and watering holes in Vancouver, Richmond, Burnaby, Coquitlam, New Westminster, and Surrey.

      Featured Dine the Line transit maps that will make for easier grub-hunting include: Breweries and Bites via the Millenium Line, Dim Sum to Dinner via the Canada Line, and World Cuisine via the Expo Line.

      “We want people to get out there and experience Metro Vancouver’s unique dining and brewpub neighbourhoods and we want people to use transit to get there,” said TransLink CEO Kevin Desmond, in a press statement. “Transit connects our communities in so many ways and we want transit to be the way that residents and tourists discover culinary hubs throughout our great city.”

      TransLink customers will be able to learn more about the culinary experiences and hubs through posters that will be put up at SkyTrain stations, which will provide more information on the participating restaurants.
