As well, the public transit authority’s Transport 2050 campaign will have a presence at this year’s fair. Expect an exhibit that features displays “designed to spark your transportation imagination,” such as a 3-D “microcity” animated model of Metro Vancouver, an immersive virtual reality experience, and more.
Special buses will also provide new ways to reach the PNE at Hastings Park with the No. 16 PNE special bus running between the Expo Line’s 29th Avenue Station, Millennium Line’s Renfrew Station, and Pacific Coliseum. Up to five additional buses per hour will be used between 9:30 am and 12:30 am.
Alternatively, for those traveling from the North Shore, the No. 210 PNE special bus runs between Phibbs Exchange and Pacific Coliseum using two additional buses per hour from 10 am to midnight.
The 2019 Fair at the PNE runs from Saturday, August 17 to Monday, September 2.
