TransLink pop-up shop features all the Vancouver transit swag of your dreams


Shopping online is fun and all, but stealing a break from your commute to get some Vancouver-centric goods is hard to beat.

Transit nerds, and anyone looking for something only-in-Vancouver to gift will want to take note that TransLink is running a pop-up shop in Waterfront Station from August 16 to 18.

You’ll find classic and new TransLink apparel and decor at the shop, like tees starring a 1948 Brill Trolleybus (like the one you can tour the city on this month) and umbrellas with the Vancouver bus system map.

Last fall, TransLink launched their merch shop lineup with items like beach towels, mugs, water bottles, and home decor goods (toss cushions, shower curtains, etc).

Other new items include bus map laptop covers, system map tote bags, logo socks, vehicle tumblers, and a big system map puzzle. You can check out everything at TransLink’s online store site.
