Transit connections[edit]

Burquitlam station provides an on- and off-street transit exchange on Clarke Road, between Como Lake and Smith avenues.[4] The station is in Translink's Fare Zone 3 which means customers must pay additional fare if they cross zone boundaries using SeaBus or SkyTrain during peak hours (from start of transit service in the morning to 6:30 pm, excluding weekends and holidays). This additional amount is determined by the number of boundaries crossed. All bus and HandyDART travel is 1-zone.
