TransLink last week announced it will rescind layoff notices issued to almost 1,500 employees and suspend further service reductions planned for next week following release of British Columbia’s Restart Plan to restore metro Vancouver's economy.

TransLink is working with the province on a solution to address the financial impact that TransLink has incurred due to the COVID-19 pandemic, agency officials said in a press release.

Based on the “progress in these discussions”, TransLink announced it will reverse some of its cost-cutting measures announced in April to make up for its loss of CA$75 million a month due to lower ridership related to the pandemic.
