Evening on the Canada Line – Waterfront Station – me & the gents..
The Lamar Transit Advertising team: Dan Maure (Sales Manager), Byron Montgomery (General Manager), Iwona Erskine-Kellie (Lead Production Coordinator), and Jay Sharpe (BC Operations Manager) was invited to participate in the Canada Line pre-opening reception last Thursday August 13th 2009.
The new Canada Line was officially launched today, months ahead of schedule and under budget at a cost of $2 billion. The new Canada Line skytrain will connect downtown Vancouver and YVR International Airport in Richmond. The ride from downtown Vancouver to the YVR is expected to take 25 minutes. It is also expected that Canada Line will help to relieve traffic congestion during the 2010 Vancouver Games in February.
The service will officially start today, August 17, and will be free to use 1-9 PM PST. Regular fares will apply starting Tuesday. Celebrations are scheduled at new skytrain stations. City officials will be in attendance.
