TRANSLINK’S Busker Program is back after being suspended for the last two years due to COVID-19. The program has been providing transit riders with music and entertainment since Expo ’86.
In addition to the return of buskers on the transit system, TransLink on Monday also launched a new program featuring 26 local musicians and artists performing at five different transit hubs across the region throughout the summer.
“This is all part of our commitment to continually improving the customer experience. In addition to getting you to your destination safely and conveniently, we want to bring some fun to your commute,” says TransLink CEO Kevin Quinn.
Riders are invited to enjoy 54 free performances between May and October at the following transit hubs:
- Waterfront SkyTrain Station
- Londsdale Quay SeaBus Terminal
- Surrey Central SkyTrain Station
- Coquitlam Centre SkyTrain Station
- Bridgeport Bus Exchange.
Customers can find the list of artists and the performance schedule on the Art Moves section of the TransLink website. This program is part of TransLink’s Customer Experience Action Plan which identified creating a safer and more pleasant travelling atmosphere as one of its priorities.
