“It was a fun, jam-packed day,” said teacher Megan Melville.

The class got a behind-the-scenes look at TransLink’s operating facilities thanks to winning a contest that asked students to describe how they envision the future of transportation in Metro Vancouver.

Their submission included an iMovie video, noted Melville.

The field trip included getting picked up by a bus, a visit to a bus repair facility and SkyTrain control centre, a pizza lunch, and meeting a transit police dog and TransLink CEO Kevin Desmond.
