Stock Description


On a Saturday afternoon a hundred years ago, public transit arrived in British Columbia as Car 1 of Victoria's street railway proudly set off down Store Street.

Now, as we enter the 1990s, SeaBus carries three million people a year across Burrard Inlet and the computerized SkyTrain crosses the city of Vancouver in a matter of minutes. The lively and fascinating story of what we know today as Translink is beautifully designed and illustrated with hundreds of photographs, many in full colour.
