While We're Battling the TTC, Vancouver Couples Are Getting Married Aboard a Public Bus
I've dreamt about this bus transfer since I was a little girl

While we’re all moaning and groaning over transit in Toronto, a Vancouver couple just voluntarily celebrated the most special day of their lives onboard a public bus. These people willingly called up Translink to request the bus/venue, and upon approval the world’s most inexpensive wedding (no one had to pay the $2.75 bus fare!) rolled out. With TTC commutes being the least favourite part of our day in Toronto, not helped by recent violence and endless service interruptions, a spot on the streetcar isn’t exactly the most sought after wedding destination. At the very least the ceremony would be diverted northbound on Shaw, eastbound on Queen, southbound on Church and then finally breakdown on King. (But actually, getting married on a vintage Toronto streetcar is a thing you can do.)

Jarred Greff and Nina Schmidt have a pretty cute explanation for their Graduate-esque transit romance: they met on the bus. “It sounds cheesy, but I would call it love at first sight, something I definitely didn’t believe in at that point of my life,” Schmidt reported to the TransLink onboard newspaper The Buzzer in a craiglist’s missed connection’s dream come true. The bus wedding fell in the middle of Vancouver’s I Love Transit celebration, which coincidentally has fallen in Toronto’s never-ending We Are Frustrated With Transit Lifetime.
