East Pender Street Information

  • In order to minimize neighbourhood impacts by providing reliable transit service for the many spectators and locals in the area, and given the location of the Olympic Lane along Hastings Street, there will be up to 50 TransLink buses staged on both sides of East Pender Street between Renfrew and Windermere between February 13 and 27.
