Two-for-one Sundays on BC Transit

September 10th, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

Did you know that if you have a monthly FareCard, another adult and four children can ride with you for free on Sundays and holidays?

Don’t take my word for it. Here’s the scoop:

Plus, On Sundays and Holidays you can use your FareCard and take five others with you for free. A total of six: Two adults (14 and older) and up to four children (13 and under) ride on a single Adult FareCard, West Coast Express 28-Day Pass, or Annual Employer Transit Pass (does not apply to Concession Passes).

Sweet! Apparently my wife knew about this for ages but it’s totally news to me as I don’t take transit much. I think it is very cool of BC Transit/Translink to attempt to get families to take public transportation together with incentives like this.

We had decided this morning to have brunch over at Londsdale Quay and my wife suggested we take the SeaBus over to the quay. I asked why take transit when it’s gonna cost the same by car? That’s when she told me about this freebie business with the FareCards.

At first I didn’t believe her and dismissed it as something she made up. So she boots up the computer and shows me the Translink fare pricing page. Guess who’s wearing the “dumb dumb” hat today?
