Vancouver riders get out and push as buses struggle in snow

Bus riders get out and push

Wintry conditions are causing mayhem on Metro Vancouver streets, and some hardy commuters even got out and pushed city buses as they struggled on slick roads.

Wednesday morning, Twitter user @callmezanne tweeted a video of a large group of people struggling to push a bus up a snow-covered hill.

"Got stuck again," she said. 

And @garbeigeartiste tweeted an image of another group of people trying to push a bus. 

TransLink declared Wednesday "an extreme travel day," and is advising would-be riders to "stay home where possible."

Some SkyTrain stations are closed, and some bus routes are completely cancelled.
