The transit authority advises commuters to dress for the snowy and icy weather and wear proper footwear. In addition, passengers should expect some service disruptions throughout the day. On some routes, TransLink may change 60-foot buses to 40-foot ones, and there may be extra crowding as a result. 

Due to the snowy weather, the Millennium Line is operating with four-car trains, which allows for increased capacity but reduced frequency.

Currently, there are 114 bus alerts listed on the advisory alerts page. However, not all of these alerts are due to poor road conditions. Some of them are informational, explaining service changes or new stops, while others are due to construction.

A snowfall warning remains in effect for Metro Vancouver,with total snowfall amounts of up to 20 centimetres expected. The highest amounts are expected over the northern and inland sections of Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley where the snow will persist the longest, until tonight or Wednesday morning.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas.
