A division of TransLink, the Transit Police Service (SCBCTAPS) delivers policing service to the multiple modes of the transit system and has a mandate to preserve and maintain the public peace, prevent crime and offences against the law, aid in the administration of justice and enforce the laws of British Columbia. Transit Police Officers also issue violation tickets for transit infractions, including tickets for fare evasion.
Nearly one million journeys are undertaken each day on our buses, trains and SeaBus. Transit Police works closely with the jurisdictional police services through which the system passes, the transit operating companies and many other stakeholders - including the travelling public - in order to provide efficient and effective policing.
