All Columbia College students must pay adult fares on transit (even if you are under 19 years of age) unless you are a full-time high school student, in which case you can obtain an orange concession card.

How do I get around on Vancouver transit? 


Translink’s routes connect directly with the SkyTrain and SeaBus right at the stations.  Buses operate seven days a week. Check Translink’s page to plan your trip


SkyTrains run across the Metro Vancouver region, including to and from Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster, Richmond, Vancouver Airport and Surrey. The SkyTrain provides daily service every two to five minutes but does not run throughout the night.



The SeaBus is a passenger-only ferry that travels between Vancouver and North Vancouver. The SeaBus links with the SkyTrain and buses in downtown Vancouver at the Waterfront Station. It operates daily every 15 to 30 minutes. Bikes are welcome on the SeaBus.

For more information on bus routes, schedules, etc., contact Translink Information at 604-953-3333 (6:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.) or online at
