Transit service increases, plus free park-and-ride for Canucks playoff games

TransLink is increasing SkyTrain service for the nights the Vancouver Canucks are playing Stanley Cup playoff games on home ice.

It begins with tonight’s Round 1 game against the Calgary Flames, with additional trains being placed into service. Extra trains will continue to run if the game goes into overtime.

In addition, the Pacific National Exhibition is offering a free park-and-ride lot for Rogers Arena spectators and fans heading to downtown Vancouver bars and restaurants.

Parking lot No. 16 is located on East Hastings and Windermere Street, directly across from PlayLand’s main entrance.

For the quickest transit route to get to downtown Vancouver from the park-and-ride, fans can take the 135 Burrard Station bus by boarding the bus stop directly across the street on the PlayLand side. Buses arrive every 7 to 12 minutes before the game begins and every 15 minutes after the game ends.

As an alternate route from the park-and-ride, fans can also take the No. 14 UBC trolley for their travels to and from downtown.
