We continue to salt and sand bus loops and SkyTrain stations, but please use caution in these areas and remember to dress warmly in anticipation of potential delays.

Expect extra crowding on some routes To provide improved traction, many articulated buses have been switched with standard, 40 foot buses. This will mean some modified service, with increased crowding and the possibility of passups in some areas.

HandyDART is currently operating regular service.

Open Innovation Call

Graphic of a home and business sharing information

In Spring 2018, TransLink launched the first Open Innovation Call to look for innovative ideas to improve mobility in this region. The theme for the inaugural call was enabling seamless integrated door-to-door mobility for people and goods.

  • TransLink's Open Innovation Calls are open to anyone — we encourage individuals, companies, non-profit and non-governmental organizations, and academic institutions to apply.
  • Ideas must address the specific challenge outlined in each Open Innovation Call.
  • Ideas can be at an early concept stage, or embodied in an already commercialized product or service. All ideas should aim for eventual implementation.
  • If your idea is selected by the evaluation panel, you may be offered:
    • Support to help further develop your idea (for pre-commercialized ideas)
    • Access to TransLink assets to test or demonstrate your idea (for near-commercialized ideas)
    • Opportunity to pilot your idea on a larger scale in partnership with TransLink (for market-ready ideas).
