Yes, all employees at TransLink belong to a union. There are a number of unions. Office workers union, drivers and maintenance staff union, SkyTrain union, Canada line workers are in a different union.
are translink jobs and jobs like this (service jobs not the bus driving jobs) union?

Update: Postings currently removed from the website, but they will be back soon.

TransLink has had at least two hiring fairs in the past month or so, so I think HR is swamped processing applicants as they move thru the recruitment process...

Stay tuned!

Well... Depends on who will be operating the proposed line. Will it be a continuation of the current Expo line? Or will it be separate? Sounds like its at least five years away, probably double that.

Maybe this question is off topic a little, but I was wondering about the recent news about Surrey making more skytrain, instead of surface transit. 

Will it be the same company that runs the skytrains in Vancouver that will be running things all the way to Langley too?

It looks like skytrain and buses will be one of the biggest source of jobs in the lower mainland Vancouver, I guess it doesn't hurt to get started and build up seniority with loyalty.

Currently 3500 drivers in the system.

TransLink has secured $7.3 Billion in extra funding over the next 10 years; ordering 600 new buses; building a new depot in the city.

Needing 400-500 more city bus drivers EACH year, for the next 3-5 years.

They're here! Should see them in service mid November thru February.

The three month test was a success! Used primarily on #351; 311; 620; 301 & 555.

TransLink has ordered 32 double Decker buses, expected to arrive in summer 2019.

Should also get assigned to 601's too, once the lower hanging overhead wires are raised high enough for the buses to get thru.
