TransLink offering free transit to veterans Nov. 11
TransLink is offering free transit service to all Canadian veterans on Sunday, Nov. 11.
Members of the Royal Canadian Legion, the Army, Navy and Air Force Veterans and the Korean Veterans Association will need only to show their membership cards to receive free transportation. (The free service does not apply to associate members of those organizations).
Free transit is also offered to current members of the armed forces, as well as police (including auxiliaries), firefighters, the Coast Guard, BC Ambulance Paramedics and Department of Fisheries and Oceans Officers. They may ride free in uniform, or on presenting their badge.
All TransLink services will observe a period of silence at the stop they are closest to at 11 a.m. Sunday.
