Commuters should have a relatively easier go of it Thursday in Metro Vancouver, following the chaos of Wednesday's cold and snowy weather affecting transportation in the region.

TransLink has advised that the situation has stabilized for the most part into Thursday morning, but it is not quite business as usual.

"Conditions have improved overnight and we’ve had crews working to rectify various issues which impacted services yesterday," notes TransLink via email.

"We expect transit services will be operating today, however service will be slower than normal, and customers should build in additional travel time. Our advice is to check transit alerts before travelling."

When it comes to train service, so far Thursday the SkyTrain is running, however delays can be expected.

Some West Coast Express trips have been delayed by a few minutes this morning as well.

On the bus lines, a blanket caution exists to expect service delays. Detours and cancellations are posted for individual lines on the TransLink alerts page.

"Given many side streets remain icy, HandyDART will remain at essential service levels only," adds TransLink.
