If you just can’t get enough of Vancouver’s transit on your body, you’re in for a treat. Yes, you can finally buy clothes from TransLink. Really.

The TransLink Store launched online on Tuesday, offering a range of t-shirts under $30, all inspired by bus destinations and the iconic SeaBus.

If that doesn’t float your boat, how about some home decor?

A Retro SeaBus poster will set you back $15. Or how about a Wayfinding or Bus Art Throw Pillow for $59?

For the commuter about town, TransLink gets techy, with iPhone 7 cases for $22 each. And in a real retro move, they’re offering a System Map Pencil Case for $10.95.

To make a real splash, you could always opt for the TransLink System Map Shower Curtain for $90, or the SkyTrain Beach Towel for $38.50.

You’d think that’s about as close to your body as transit can get. But if you really want to taste your transit, TransLink is also offering drinkware.

For $11.95 you can a Retro Destination Blinds Mug, or if you’re more of a water person (and in Vancouver, who isn’t?) there’s a range of water bottles for $25.95.

And if all that hasn’t satisfied your inner transit geek, you can always shell out for some limited edition scale models of the SkyTrain and SeaBus.

A scale Burrard Pacific Breeze SeaBus model, with metal hulls and “a detailed plastic main compartment” will set you back $25.

Meanwhile, $20 gets you one MarkII 1300/1400 Series SkyTrain, with a metal cabin and plastic chassis with rolling wheels.

Luckily, each SkyTrain car “links together like the real thing,” so you could start a collection, with two SkyTrain models going at a discounted price of $35.

Right now, TransLink is offering free shipping on orders over $50, and they’re offering you three chances to win merchandise packs worth more than $100 in an online contest.

The TransLink store won’t just be open online either – there’ll be a popup store open at Gilmore SkyTrain Station between December 6 and December 8.

I mean, what more could you want from TransLink? 😉
