TRANSLINK said on Saturday night that with heavy snowfall throughout Metro Vancouver, its snow plan for severe weather is active. Extra staff are deployed throughout the system to keep transit moving as best it’s able.
Conditions are changing by the minute and some bus routes are experiencing detours and delays due to road conditions, particularly in some areas of Vancouver. TransLink is in constant communication with municipalities recommending which roads most need salting and plowing.
“Our best advice for bus customers is to sign up for Transit Alerts, consult our Trip Planner, or follow us on Twitter @TransLink for the most up-to-date information and route-specific information,” added TransLink.
SkyTrain, SeaBus, and HandyDART are running regular service.
