Snow in Vancouver: TransLink updates on SkyTrain and buses, B.C. Ferries, YVR airport

    1 of 3 2 of 3

      As with the December snowfall in Vancouver, buses are stuck and lined-up at the bottom of any hills.

      For instance, at 10 a.m., several buses were stalled at the base of the south end of the Granville Bridge before the hill heading up into the South Granville area.

      Some 99 B-Line buses were also jackknifed on Broadway.

      If you're waiting for a bus on a route that has a hill on it, you may not see a bus for some time. When you do, it may be too full with passengers to pick you up.

      Simon Fraser University also announced that it has cancelled all of its classes starting from 12:30 p.m. onward on its Burnaby campus.

      Travel by car has also faced numerous problems from congestion to accidents.

      CBC Vancouver captured footage of cars sliding and crashing near West 7th Avenue and Oak Street.

      Here is an update on transit, B.C. Ferries, and YVR airport.

      This morning (February 3), buses were lined up and stuck at the south end of the Granville Street Bridge.
