It’s that time again for colourful explosions in the sky and TransLink has all the tips you need to get you to the 2017 Honda Celebration of Light transit safe and sound.
Travelling with a Compass Card? Make sure to top up your Stored Value online at compasscard.ca before you head out to avoid getting stuck at a fare gate with insufficient fare.
