The snow has arrived in Vancouver and with it has come another round of transit delays.

In a statement, TransLink said a track issue involving a power outage near Bridgeport Station was causing delays on The Canada Line.

That issue has since been fixed, but customers should still expect delays of about “five to 10 minutes, as the system recovers.”

Across the region, other backups, delays, and detours were being reported.

Last fall, TransLink said it was “preparing for the worst” when it came to winter this year, and unveiled a wide-ranging winter-readiness plan that include the trial use of ‘Tire Socks” on certain bus routes.

And this isn’t the first time the snow has caused a headache for transit users this season.

A snow dump back in December had much the same effect.

It remains to be seen just how chaotic things will get today.
