“We want people to get out there and experience Metro Vancouver’s unique dining and brewpub neighbourhoods and we want people to use transit to get there,” says TransLink CEO Kevin Desmond in a release.

“Transit connects our communities in so many ways and we want transit to be the way that residents and tourists discover culinary hubs throughout our great city.”

The CEO of Tourism Vancouver, Ty Speer, adds: “Embarking on a Dine the Line tour is like having a local guide who knows the best spots to eat in the city, and best of all, they’re accessible by transit.”
