The Future of Transportation at the PNE Fair

August 11, 2019

TransLink will be a prominent feature at this year’s PNE Fair with an exhibit offering a glimpse into the past, present and future of transportation in Metro Vancouver.

Over the next five days, TransLink’s social media channels and the #Transport2050 hashtag will provide followers with a sneak peek of the inaugural exhibit and key features.

TransLink’s exhibit will include:

  • A virtual reality experience
  • Hands-on e-scooter demonstrations
  • 3D “MicroCity” animated model of Metro Vancouver
  • Double-decker, RapidBus, and transit museum bus displays
  • Car-share, bike-share, and ride-share activations
  • Electric vehicle displays
  • A Compass Instagram wall

TransLink is in the midst of its largest public engagement effort to date – Transport 2050. The Transport 2050 public engagement bus will be on site during the PNE Fair, allowing members of the public to take the Transport 2050 survey and enter into a draw for tickets to that evening’s Summer Night Concert.

TransLink along with the PNE are working together to bring guests to the Fair by transit, offering 2-for-1 admission on Aug. 23 or 30. Guests showing their Compass Card at the PNE Fair Gate on Friday, Aug. 23 or Friday Aug. 30, will receive a 2-for-1 admission for adults (14-64 years of age) and seniors (65+ years of age).

There will be television live cross locations available and a spokesperson on site for the opening weekend. A spokesperson can also be made available at other times upon request.
