We continue to salt and sand bus loops and SkyTrain stations, but please use caution in these areas and remember to dress warmly in anticipation of potential delays.

Expect extra crowding on some routes To provide improved traction, many articulated buses may be switched with standard, 40 foot buses. This will mean some modified service, with increased crowding and the possibility of passups in some areas.

HandyDART is currently operating regular service, but is experiencing delays in the Tri-City and Vancouver areas.

Expo and Millennium Lines are running consistently, but with reduced frequency due to the need to have staff on each train to watch for weather-related problems on the tracks. Please be prepared to wait longer on the platform between trains.

Fare Pricing

There are three fare zones for SkyTrain and SeaBus travel in Metro Vancouver — the number of boundaries you cross during your trip will determine your fare. View the Fare Zone Map to see the SkyTrain and SeaBus zones. Buses are one zone.

  • If you have a Compass Card/Ticket, you can transfer across all modes on a single fare for up to 90 minutes (120 minutes with a West Coast Express fare), as long as your fare includes the number of zones you intend to travel on SkyTrain and SeaBus.
  • If paying with cash or Bus Transfer on the bus, you can transfer to other buses on a single fare for up to 90 minutes, but you can’t transfer to rail or SeaBus with a Bus Transfer. You’ll need Compass to transfer to rail or SeaBus.
  • Buses require exact change if paying cash.
  • Compass Vending Machines (CVMs) are located at SkyTrain, SeaBus, and West Coast Express stations, and accept cash, credit/debit.
  • After 6:30 p.m. on weekdays, and all day Saturday, Sunday and holidays, the system operates as one zone (so one-zone fares apply).
  • The $5 Canada Line YVR AddFare applies to Stored Value trips, or single-use fares and Day Passes purchased on Compass Cards and Compass Tickets at Sea Island stations (YVR–Airport, Sea Island Centre, and Templeton), for eastbound travel beyond Sea Island.
