TransLink is getting into the spirit of the season with a special Lunar New Year bus.
The bus will take part in celebrations this weekend by participating in the Vancouver Chinatown Spring Festival Parade on Sunday.
The new year will be the year of the rat, a symbol of wealth and good fortune. The Lunar New Year bus livery features the rat on both sides with lanterns signifying life and prosperity.
After the parade, the bus will enter service on various Metro Vancouver bus routes, including Burnaby.
“The Lunar New Year is a time to celebrate the diverse communities who live together in Metro Vancouver,” says TransLink CEO Kevin Desmond. “We are proud to participate in the parade with our Lunar New Year bus which celebrates the beginning of a new year.”
