If I hadn't known Christmas was coming up from the music they've got playing in the stores or the fresh snowcaps on top of the mountains, I'd have realized by the bus. Every year TransLink dresses up one of its buses as a reindeer, and yesterday evening I caught it taking on passengers at Granville and Dunsmuir. It was running the 14 to UBC, so there's a pretty big swath of Vancouver it might show up in, drawing second glances and spreading awareness of just what time of the year it is.
The TTC never did anything like this, presumably because it could never afford to do so.
